Snag Island is a small island (or large rock) which sits just off the beach opposite the township. Leeman was formally named Snag Island until it was renamed.
During the summer months, the winds are strong and this provides perfect conditions for keen windsurfers. Each year there is the ‘Screaming Leeman’ windsurfing tournament.
Fishing is probably the biggest industry and pastime in Leeman. Primarily Cray-fishing (rock lobster) tops the list but for the amateur, bald chin groper and dhufish are plentiful. In fact Leeman gives itself the title of ‘Home of the Western Australia’s Dhufish’. There is one jetty at Leeman. There are two boat ramps both with gravel ramps.
Leeman is around 295kms north of Perth and around 88kms south of Dongara/Pt Denison on the Indian Ocean Drive.
Seaside Supplies is a little general store/news agency in Leeman which also sells liquor, ice and bait. They are open 7 days a week.
