Australia's only Beach Polo Tournament
Last year, for the first time, the Pinctada Cable Beach Resort and Spa ran a Polo Tournament on the beach. It was such a success, a repeat was inevitable and so the Cable Beach Polo Tournament 2014 is happening in May this year.

This year the line up has been expanded into a three day festival starting on Friday 23 May, 2014 with an Official Welcome Cocktail Party to be welcomed by Marilynne Paspaley AM, the well-known actor (G.P., Water Rats) and an operator and daughter of the founder of Paspaley Pearls, one of the sponsors of the Tournament.
Free to watch from the sands and be served from the hot-dog stand for food and soft drinks. Or buy a ticket to the Cable Beach Polo VIP Marquee ($88)
But in either case (and there are more expensive and luxurious options and packages available) you will get to watch the top professional polo players compete for the Paspaley International Beach Polo Cup II.
The Tournament runs from the evening of Friday 23rd May to Sunday night on the 25th May.
