Town Beach (K 8) is located at the western end of the main town area. It lies adjacent to the remains of Mangrove Point jetty and is backed by a large car park, a park including a kiosk and playground and the Broome caravan park. A long, narrow, steep concrete boat ramp crosses the high tide beach. The beach is 200 m long, faces southeast and is fringed by a small jetty and mangrove-covered rock flats. The beach itself has a steep high tide beach and extensive tidal flats, which on a full moon is the site of the ‘stair of the moon’ moonlight display, an event which attracts hundred of sightseers every full moon. During the day it is a popular beach for locals and people from the adjacent caravan park. It has a shady picnic area and at high tide is a nice calm swimming beach.
