Alki Beach and surrounding area is most definitely worth a visit. But don't make a special trip just to see the lighthouse. Go for the views of the water and the mountains.

Nice park, and clean location. Bump into some very polite local people, and enjoyed one hell of a view. Nice, quiet area for a personal picnicking, and if your into lighthouses, well worth it.

This is an active lighthouse still owned/run by the US Coast Guard. It's an active duty station so don't expect tourist hours. Lighthouse tours are only available during summer weekends (May-August). Wonderful views of Elliott Bay and the Olympic Mountains from the 37 foot height....More

If you're going just to check out the lighthouse you might be disappointed (depending on your expectations). Alki Point is worth a visit just by itself, it's really nice a low tide on a sunny day.

Don't just go to Alki to see the lighthouse. The neighborhood is very nice, take some time (on a nice day) and walk around. You can get near the lighthouse coming from either the south or north side. But not right up to the light...More
