Leighton Beach is a simply stunning spot to watch a sea sunset over the ocean.
We took some friends from overseas to watch the sunset over white sands, crystal clear water and Rottnest Island, simply beautiful.
Take your camera and take photos at regular intervals.

Easy for swimming as it's usually pretty calm. Waves aren't overwhelming. Great family beach. Easily accessible off the train. Usually fairly quiet.

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. Will mean a bit of a walk but worth it. Its a treasured and wonderful sweepingly beautiful beach with lovely white sands and blue waters. It attracts wind surfers however on windy days.. they look fab but I would not want a wind surfer caving my skull in while I was enjoying a bit of peaceful breast stroke. so I guess, pick your times.. if you see tonnes of windsurfing kites in the air avoid that bit of the beach. Its a huge beach though.. plenty of room for everyone.. great to jog along.

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. But even that didn't dampen our joy, not even an iota.:) The best way to enjoy Leighton is to really come prepared, and by that I mean, bring your own cooler loaded with drinks and snacks - if you intend to stay for a few hours. A beach throw/towel and a beach umbrella would be good as well if you think you can't handle being under the sun for hours on end. Although there is a cafe near the parking area and also one closer to the beach, one might find it too cumbersome to be making a few trips to get hydrated. Love this beach!
