Walked along the shore and found many beautiful rocks. Many cafes to choose from. The view was spectacular.

Very pretty area to take a drive or stroll around. Wheelchair accessible with a large concrete boardwalk.

This beach probably is more fun in the summer like most beaches. The day we went we walked on the rocky sand and saw lots of birds and a couple Seals out in the water.

Alki is a great escape from the city while you are still in it!. The beach makes you feel like you are in California. If you are brave enough to tread the water go ahead! Its pretty cold!

Stunning view of the beach. Lots of restaurants, pubs, and ice creams shops. Paved waterfront trail and paved bike path. Dog friendly, except not on the actual beach. A must see when visiting Seattle.

We drove along Alki Beach on a rainy April afternoon and were impressed by how long a span of beach was beside the road. Should be good for walking or jogging on a less blustery day. Alki Beach Lighthouse was closed on the day we...More

My boyfriend and I have walked our dogs randomly around midnight. We saw quite a bit of people walking around. But like anywhere I would watch for safety. When it gets warmer I expect there will be even more traffic.
Where is a good place to watch the Seahawks game?

There are a couple of pubs/bars that you could try, as well as Cactus & Salty's
If I take the water taxi will I be able to enjoy the area with no car use? Want to be able to use the beach and eat someplace. I have a 6&8 year old so reasonable walking fine.

The area is perfectly walkable and actually encouraging to do so. You can buy food at several places (fish and chips are awesome) including nice restaurants, ice cream shop, burgers, informal eateries, coffee shop, etc... More
