Beach WA 838. This is a similar 800 m long strip of sand, which continues north to the southern side of the Cottesloe groyne. The reef continues north, with breaks over the reefs known as Seconds Left and the Dutch Inns. Marine Parade runs along the top of the bluff providing good access to both beaches.
Port and Leighton beaches are both patrolled and have a relatively low hazard rating under normal low wave conditions. Port with slightly lower waves is considered the least hazardous beach. However waves larger than 1 m will produce a number of rips along the beach and deeper rip channels.
Port and Leighton usually provide low beach breaks, with most surfers heading for the breaks over the Cable Station reef and off the northern Dutch Inns bluffs, below the Vlamingh memorial.
These two beaches bordered by port development, but have very good access, parking and facilities, and are usually less crowded, than some of the northern Perth beaches.Read less
