We enjoyed walking along Alki Beach. It was a beautiful view. We even saw a Bald Eagle fly over us. They have many restaurants to stop by and have a bite to eat.

Took the Water taxi to Alki Beach. Great view of the Seattle Skyline. Ate at Marination at the dock. Wonderful food and fun area. Did not shuttle to the Alki Beach but walked around the Dock area. Fun and worth the trip

I visited at the end of October and despite the chilly weather Alki Beach was lovely. It wasn’t too crowded and it was nice seeing people walking their dogs and enjoying the day. There were many places to shop and eat or just get coffee....More

Alki Beach can be very crowded on nice days, but it's well worth the visit. This is the absolute best view of Seattle there is. I'm a native that now lives in Portland and have watched this skyline grow over the years. I've always been...More

We took a water taxi and rented bikes at that same spot. The ride to the Alki beach trail was short and safe :)
