Trip Planner:   USA  /  Washington State  /  Seattle  /  Beaches  /  Alki Beach

Alki Beach, Seattle

(4.5/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • What is it about the beautiful Alki Point Beach! It's just such a different vantage point looking across the Sound back towards Seattle. Worth the trip and remember to walk the beach!  more »
