Ocean view accommodation

I'm just starting to do some research for a holiday in Broome, but it seems there is very little accommodation that actually has ocean views. I assume this is due to large sand dunes, but wonder if there is anywhere that others can recommend.

I'd ideally like self contained and would be very keen on a stayz/airbnb type arrangement.

We don't mind being a bit out of town as will have a hire car I'd say.

No, I'm afraid ocean views are pretty much non existent, apart from a few very expensive apartments in the Cable Beach Club Resort complex.

There's lots of accommodation choices in Broome and if you are wanting to stay near the beach, then I would recommend you look in Cable Beach. You won't find a lot of options out of town, apart from Coconut Wells, but it means around a 30 minute drive to travel back into town, if you are wanting to dine out, shop etc.

It has nothing to do with sand dunes really. It is really where the land has been to develop.

The Mangrove HOtel in town has views of Roebuck Bay.

Ramada Eco beach hrs out of Broome to the south has tents with beach views.

Ramada Eco also has villas, but as Hami has mentioned it is around 2 hours drive south of Broome.

ocean views in Broome are pretty much non-existent. I was so surprised when I visited to find this out as I thought that there would be some wonderful restaurants overlooking the coast. It's a funny old town caught in a time war: that is both the charm and the downfall of it (depending on how you view things)
