Reddell Beach Broome Australia
Sunset against the red pindan cliffs and sandstone rocks adds a dramatic contrast to this area.

For a blistering sunset without tourists, camels or 4WDs, pull into any of the turn-offs along Kavite Rd between Gantheaume Point and the port and watch the pindan cliffs turn into molten lava. The beach is a favourite dog-walking spot, but it's strictly experienced swimmers only in the water due to the strong currents.
