This property was the best place a family could gather across the street from beach. All kinds of restaurants close to many activities. The hot tub was a real blessing. The owners so accommodating. Our plane arrived at 5 am when we got there they made a place for us to rest until apartment was ready. We were able to... More

OK..so the intent was good, but in Sleepless in Seattle, there is a scene where Tom Hanks and his motherless little boy have paddled from his houseboat on Lake Union (in the heart of Seattle) to Alki Point. Well, that may be possible if you have a couple days and extra strong arms, but certainly not a trip you want... More

This is a very nice sandy beach. There is a nice walk way along the beach as well as a bike path. There are several nice areas to set and a stunning view of Seattle and the mountains.

With shops on the other side of the street and a long beach walk, this place is great for the exercise mindful person. You can walk, run, bike, skate for hours. Stop at several coffee shops, Bring your dog, go for a swim, see the mountains and just enjoy the day and view.

Even though it was cold outside, with the sun it was a wonderful walk along the water. The main street is also lined with coffee shops and restaurants. Was nice to see many others enjoying the weather and scenery, although parking took a little time to find.

It's a nice beach area where you can walk, ride bikes, stroll, roller blade, skate for a couple miles along the beach. There's a place you can rent those multiple bikes for families and kayaks. I've gone here to fish as well on the pier. So many things to do! The beach is sandy. BUT be warned. The water is... More

Alki Beach gives you a great view of the skyline especially at night. Completely free ;) It is directly across from downtown Seattle. There is a bunch of restaurants and cafes along the beach.

It's as close to a real beach scene as you're going to get in Seattle. Terrific views of downtown Seattle, laid back feel where you can do active things like run, roller blade, wind surf, play volleyball or just relax on the sandy beach, have a picnic, bbq or stroll into one of the restaurants along the strip.

The beach and promenade are excellent places for a walk. Terrific views of Puget Sound, the downtown Seattle skyline and Olympia mountains in the distance. Flat, easy walking. Also, lots of good eating places along the way if you want to take a break.
