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.

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.
