Alki Beach, Seattle

(750+ reviews on the web)
Beach
View the city skyline, glimpse orcas and sea lions offshore, and play beach volleyball at Alki Beach. Rent kayaks and paddleboards, ride a bike down the paved path, and roller-skate while you take in the views of the nearby mountain ranges. Eat and drink at one of the many nearby restaurants, or pack food to eat at the picnic tables. Street parking is available nearby, but it fills quickly--consider taking the ferry from the city and then the free shuttle bus to the beach instead. Our Seattle holiday planner makes visiting Alki Beach and other Seattle attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Great place to go only down side was parking. It took quite some time to find a spot. Lots of little shops and places to eat around. Kids found some shells and we had a great time.  more »
  • Nice clean beach and a beautiful view of Seattle downtown. Our visit happened to be on one of the sunniest days of the Seattle summer and the entire skyline was visible from the shore. Lots of novelty...  more »
  • Alki Beach is a nice place to take a walk. It is place to just hang out and enjoy the day. There are places to drink, eat, shop and rent bikes and pedal vehicles across the street from the beach. Brin...  more »
