if you want a clean spacious beach where you wont get dumped.. come to this beach. The main bother is that the dumbos closed the railway station that used to stop at that beach many many years ago.. such a dumb move.. You can get to this beach by getting off at North Fremantle railway station or Victoria Street station.... More

Drove down to Fremantle from Perth during our Christmas holidays and we fell in love with Leighton Beach (and Fremantle in general)! Such a stunning white sand beach with some of the nicest and beautiful people just enjoying the summer. It was very hot when we visited but also very windy so we got totally sandblasted for the most part.... More

Best beach in Perth, need to go early in the morning to park. Always clean, sea can be quite rough but normally calm before 11am then the winds start

THE most fabulous beach: pristine waters, pure white sand, no rocks, weed, rubbish....just perfect. Surf Life Savers on patrol in holidays and at weekends, altho relatively safe waters. New toilets and changing block are great as is the new Kiosk for snacks. Great lunches and coffees at The Shipping Lane as well as Bib & Tucker. Plenty of car parking... More

Very nice beach which is easily accessible from the North Fremantle station. Perfect for casual swimming. Lots of flies even at the beach. Be careful of the sunshine in summer as there is no shelter nearby so you must get yourself some towel or hat.

The Freo Art Centre not only always has great art on a the time, it's also a lovely place to hang out with its lovely courtyards, has a whole series of free summer concerts on Sundays and also hosts high profile concerts on occasion. A brilliant venue with a colourful and very interesting history!

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.
