Leighton Beach

Natural Attractions

Leighton Beach is a popular beach just north of Fremantle offering lovely snorkelling, swimming or just an easily accessible spot for enjoying a trip to the beach. With low wave conditions it is suitable for young children. Laze on the soft white sandy beach and observe the skilled wind and kite surfers tackling the winds off the shore.

Cool off in the refreshing waters of the Indian Ocean and try your hand at body surfing. On a calm day ensure you have a snorkel to observe the marine life under the water. For the more active, take advantage of the flat water to join some of the locals who swim daily along the coast. Complete a perfect day at the beach with the stunning Western Australian sunset against the backdrop of Rottnest Island.

To the northern end of Leighton is an animal exercise area, so even the family pet can enjoy a day down at the beach.

Parking is plentiful at Leighton, or alternatively the North Fremantle train station is an 800 metre walk away. Leighton is a five minute drive north of Fremantle and 30 minutes south of Perth.
