Broome is located in the north-west of Australia. The coastal city is in the state of Western Australia and today is primarily known as a beach holiday destination. However, it was once known as the Port of Pearls. Pearls are still cultivated here today and are renowned for their size and are highly valued throughout the world. The Great Sandy Desert begins south-east of Broome and stretches inland. Today, the Cable Beach, a 7 km long beach with white sand and the purest, crystal-clear ocean water painted in turquoise tones, is the main attraction for tourists. From November to March, swimming here is undesirable because of poisonous jellyfish. The beach runs from the city itself and runs along the paved highway. You can ride camels and ATVs. The entire coastline is 22.5km long. There are places for nudists.
