Alki Beach, Seattle

4.5
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. Plan your visit to Alki Beach and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Seattle trip planner.

  • We came on a sunny day and the beach was gorgeous. There are many activities you can do here - bathing in the sun on a bench along the water, enjoying a drink in one of those nearby coffee shops, renting a bike to peddle with your companions, eating a takeout from one of those seafood restaurants, or simply strolling along the beach taking in all the scenery. Recommended!
  • Alki will always have a special place in my heart. The scenery is gorgeous any time of the year. Seattle skyline is always breathtaking, and the ice cream along the beach is always awesome. I firmly believe that a trip to Seattle is not complete until you visit Alki.
