Eco Beach Review Broome

The Walk

Winter Escape to Eco Beach, Broome

From the moment my little family and I arrived at Eco Beach, I knew this was the perfect spot for a relaxing holiday, in an isolated but very beautiful part of the Kimberley, just south of Broome. A beautiful resort which would suit all the holiday needs of myself, my husband, and young son.

Once we walked up the steps to the open-air guest lounge, bar, restaurant and infinity pool area, the view to the beach below took our breath away and we eagerly awaited check-in to our Ocean View Eco Tent, so our stay there could begin!

Eco Beach Luxury Camping

Eco Beach is an easy 1.5 hour drive south of Broome. The dirt track from the Highway is in excellent condition and although we had hired a four-wheel-drive, I think it would still be a comfortable drive in a two-wheel drive. While we were making the drive to Eco Beach, we couldn’t help but think “hope this is worth it?!”, as it really is an isolated spot.

However, once we had arrived, and took in the views, and made ourselves comfortable in our eco tent, we were certain this was a great choice of holiday. The eco tents are a very good size – ample room for a king-size bed, complete with bedside tables, good storage for clothes etc, and even a fair amount of floor space – so our young son was more than comfortable in his swag on the floor! The en-suite bathroom had all the comforts you would need – including good-quality towels and toiletries.

During the day we enjoyed the sounds of many different types of birds, and even spied a few shy wallabies from our tent deck area. At night, the sounds of nature continue, but instead with crickets and frogs. Sure beats listening to the sound of traffic, which even when we stayed in Broome-town, we couldn’t escape from!

Beautiful beach

The beach itself was an absolute joy for beach-combing. Due to the tides which flow in and out, it is a constantly changing, unspoilt, uncrowded landscape. My son and I had great fun finding hermit crabs – we had soon worked out where they liked to hide, and we enjoyed finding their hiding places and watch them scuttle away on the sand! On one particular walk, we decided to count them but once we got to a dozen, we gave up and simply enjoyed them.

Beautiful Wildlife

Another pastime we enjoyed was finding beautiful shells that the tide had left behind – shells of all sizes and shapes, many in perfect condition. On one of our sunset walks, we even found a few mud crabs in a tidal pool! As well as starfish and the alien-like feathered stars (a type of starfish).

Even though Eco Beach is incredibly isolated, you will not find that you are lacking quality meals or professional staff – the food here is excellent. A wide range of meals are on offer, and not as expensive as you would think, considering the location. They even provided our sons meals free of charge, whenever he dined with us. Also, complimentary tea and coffee is available all day, as well as chilled water. All the staff we encountered were delightful and absolutely welcoming.

The only disappointment about our trip is that it was much too short – we didn’t have time to sample the free daily yoga sessions, or the health and beauty treatments, or the tours! So we will just have to return, to enjoy these activities, and continue our search for crabs – hermit, mud or otherwise!
