Leighton Beach is the local meeting point for dog owners, families, kite surfers, surfers, photographers and walkers. The beach is clean, parking is plentiful and the view to Rottnest is beautiful.

The swimming is good, the beach is wide and clean during summer. Views are awesome. Great spot for sunset picnics.

This is my favourite beach in the Perth/Fremantle area. Spacious, soft sand and shallow enough to bob around and cool off in the summer. Great for walking along or cycling the coastal path. Nearby bbq and new toilet facilities. The nearby restaurants, Shipping lanes and Bib & tucker are great for brunch or a smoothie.

The waves are gentle, it's a good place for a family picnic. The beach is patrolled by the Fremantle Surf Lifesaving Club most of the year. The sand is white... More

Lovely beach and good place for the family to relax. Sadly was there on a cold wet day but still you can see how you can enjoy a typical West Australian beach party here

I have spent a lot of my young life at Leighton Beach and have watched the changes over the years but sitting and watching the sunsets the peaceful surroundings, watching the ships come in makes its a beautiful place to be and the best thing is it costs nothing to do all this.

A wonderful place to see the sunset on the Indian Ocean. Gorgeous natural beauties will make you forget unhappy things and embrace the inner peace.

Love this beach. Arrived 5 years ago and this was the first beach we tested. Have tried 100's of others and Leighton is the one for us. Picture perfect Indian Ocean, gentle sloping sand into delightful waves for most of the time. Surf Life Savers patrol the beach in summer. New changing facilities have just been complete, car parking available... More
