Trip Planner:   USA  /  Washington State  /  Seattle  /  Beaches  /  Alki Beach
Alki Beach, Seattle
(4.4/5 based on 650+ 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.

  • WONDERFUL beach and eclectic city. So much to do in a leisure way., Sit on beach, eat breakfast at local coffee shop, grab beer n lunch, back to beach and then to quaint dinner on beach front. TOTALLY...  more »
  • District West Seattle is one of the most beautiful and cozy in Seattle. And of course, Alki Beach (or rather will call it) is simply required to visit. Amazing views of the city, the stark and beautiful nature-Gulf views of mountains and forests just breathtaking!

  • Alki Beach has a nice park to walk, several good restaurants but the best part is that you can take some amazing views of the Seattle skyline without a boat.
