Leighton Dog Beach: Everything You Need To Know

Leighton dog beach is part of the City of Fremantle and dogs are permitted in designated areas on this beach. It’s a popular spot for dog owners because it’s a nice long stretch of beach which makes it perfect for an outing with your pup.

But let me warn you, it’s not just dogs that enjoy Leighton beach. If you and your furry friend decide to visit, be prepared to share the sand with some local kitesurfers.

Don’t worry though, we’re all used to sharing the beach with each other, but please make sure that your dog doesn’t try to run after them!

So pack up the doggy bags and head on over to Leighton beach for a fun day in the sun with your furry companion. Just remember to follow all the rules and regulations to keep the beach a pleasant environment for everyone ๐Ÿ™‚

What’s good about Leighton Dog Beach?

  • Amazing place to watch the sunset with your dog
  • Beautiful spot to walk along the coast with your dog
  • It’s a very clean beach and doesn’t usually get too crowded outside the usual busy times
  • No rocks or seaweed
  • Outside showers near the car park
  • There’s a great dog-friendly cafe that’s called ‘The Wooden Wagon’ nearby

What’s not so good about Leighton Dog Beach?

  • Parking can be difficult during busy times
  • Water is usually too rough for dogs to go swimming (the South Fremantle dog beach typically has calmer water, but gets busier with dogs and people)
