Beautiful white beach and plenty of parking

This is one of the best beaches for parking and how close it is to the actual water. Great spot for families as the water is never too rough

The thing about Perth is that the colours you see are all quite quite stunning. Sometimes the ocean is literally purple, the sea navy blue, the sand always very white, the coral patches lilac and so on. The quality is like Essouira in Morocco or Cornwall there is a special light in these places conducive to painters and artists....however it... More

I was in Perth for a vacation in June. It was winter so it was kinda chilly when we were there to catch the sunset. It is the best sunset i've even marveled at. The view was simply stunning and it is still clearly etched in my mind. Look at the pictures i've uploaded and maybe you can understand why.... More

It's long...and there's lots of sea....just like most of West Australia. But there is nothing much to see or do there except if you want a really good meal at the Bib & Tucker.

Leighton beach has some good waves. The sand is white and clean. The park behind the beach was very nice but unfortunately when I was there the toilet block and change rooms had been demolished to make way for a new one. I had to nip into the restaurant above the SLSA club and use their loo. This is a... More

We went ti the dog beach part and it was very busy with many families and their dogs. The part where dogs are not allowed was almost empty. The water is beautiful and you can walk into it as it gets deeply slowly and the waves are not so strong there as they are at Swanbourne beach. Very white, clean... More

Nice, long white sandy beaches adjoining on one side with Port Beach and Salt Brewery and with a dog beach on the other side! There will sure to be an area along this strip that suits you!

This is a fabulous WA beach. White sands, perfect sea and safe for children and swimming. Parking can be difficult but worth it

This place is stunning, you can walk up to Swanbourne from there (might need to go up/down stairs few times but no drama) and you might even see our friendly seal hanging out between leighton and cottesloe. There are few surfing school working from there as well
