We found this beach in the end of our stay, unfortunately! It's a beautiful beach, close by to the train station and just one stop from fremantle! It's not a Must see, but if you're looking for a nice beach hangout in Perth this is a recommended beach!

As they say in Australia, life's a beach, and that's so true here in Leighton Beach. it stretches for miles, you can walk end to end on the softest sand, wide beach accommodates hundreds on a hot day, and it's always full of joggers, surfers, swimmers, and kite flyers on boards, all of whom co-exist peacefully.

Very good beach, easy access and safe. Good for an easy long walk along the waters edge. There's a dog beach a little way north and that's worth walking too, the dogs love the water and their owners really appreciate being able to take them there. I don't own a dog, but they all look very happy to me.

Breakfast with views in a great setting. Owned by Aussie Olympians so its good to know you are indirectly supporting them. Food is good quality & very reasonable. Worth a visit.

Excellent for those mild summer afternoons for a basket of fish and chips and a play ground for the kids. Specialty entertainment at times so check out what's on when you are looking as there are some great activities

Great for poochie -. Sometimes hard to find a park and busy on the highway with dogs so hold onto their leads. NO showers though so dogs go home dirty.

I love that this beach is quite closeby town, so it is handy for kiting after work. Although it gets very busy :-) just watch the doggies if you end up to far north as that is where the dogbeach is.

Its got better surf than most beaches but is a little too close to the Fremantle port for my liking and the surrounds behind Leighton beach aren't that pleasant. As a beach in its own right though its nice.

Close to Fremantle, with the cafe right on the beach. A good spot to just watch the Kite surfers, multicoloured kites, the swell can get up in the late afternoon. Pure white sand beach.
