The northern end of Leighton Beach is a dog beach. This beach is near Fremantle. The area has seen quite a lot of development recently..You can get a meal nearby. 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

A large part of Leighton beach is dog beach - so if you have a dog or like dogs, then this is the place for you ! Dogs of all shapes and sizes enjoy this beach along with their 'people'.

Loved taking my dog for a walk on the dog beach!! Such a beautiful beach and all the owners and dogs are friendly and happy. Unfortunately my car window got smashed and bag stolen. Talked to a few people and apparently that's a regular occurrence at the car park!

Nice sand on this beach, but not very comfortable for swimming because strong wind. Very popular in windsurfing and kitesurfing community

An early morning swim at Leighton Beach is a perfect start to the day. It's white sand (of course, this is WA!), broad and inviting. The Indian Ocean is warm and clear. The Surf Club and parking lot sits at one end of the beach but besides that, there's not much other than what Mother Nature provided. Perfect! And close... More
