On a hot Seattle day, Madison Beach is a cool place to spend an afternoon. Sit on the grassy beach, swim in the rolling waves, dive from the multi-level boards on the floating platform, and watch the boats crisscross the lake. There is a bath...More

Madison beach is a great little beach to visit on the warm and hot in Seattle. Very easy to get to. Just talk Madison and it dead ends right at the lake. There are plenty of places to eat near by.

Great local beach park on the shores of Lake Washington at the end of Madison from downtown Seattle. Crowd watching here showcases Seattle's diversity and the view of Mt Rainier from the floating dock is spectacular on clear days. Also has a low-dive and high-dive.

There are a lot of small shops with a real friendly outdoor appeal. The beach is small and gets crowded fast. There is a pier at the end of Madison street. Its a nice quaint friendly area.
