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.

  • This is a hidden gem in west Seattle! We stayed in the area and found the beach on our morning walk, well worth the time,  more »
  • After seeing the view of downtown from West Seattle, I looked at the map of "How to Walk the Earth" 10 years ago and looked for the monument of "Denny's arrival" from the middle of Alkai Beach, but I couldn't find it, and when I happened to ask the firefighters who were on the beach, I went to the south. It was certainly at the 63rd Ave. There are many place names related to Arthur Denny in downtown Seattle, such as Denny Park, but it was a good memorial to be touched by their history, which was the first step.
