Loved the birds around. Plenty of good places to eat around. Good place to walk, go with family. Have seen cleaner beaches though in India.

Alki beach is a people watchers paradise. Have a seat and watch everyone taking advantage of the nice weather. You can rent bikes to ride or just take a relaxing walk along the beach. If you get hungry there are plenty of restaurants to stop by and grab a bite to eat. Great views on a nice clear day.

Alki beach is located in West Seattle. The beach is not too crowded and usually very peaceful.

There are also some nice little eateries towards the end of the beach.

The view of downtown Seattle from here is one of the best.

I enjoyed this area for a morning run and found the view beautiful. Was a great area to grab a cup of coffee after the run. Returned the next day for a long walk with a friend and a different day to have dinner along the beach. If I were to travel back to Seattle and didn't need to be downtown for work, I'd like to stay near Alki Beach because I enjoyed the relaxed vibe so much.

Loved the North side of Alki beach, where you can see the Seattle skyline to the East, and we also enjoyed looking at the really nice apartments and condos along the beach. However, we thought our kids could enjoy the beach and swim, but we were disappointed: the beach is sandy, but the water was so dirty! Not just a ton of algae, but also pieces of floating wood, plastic pieces, unidentified bubbles and much more. How disappointing!
The water was much cleaner at Lincoln Park, but so cold we couldn't swim anyway. And the pool over there didn't have much warmer water. Nice place to visit, but not for swimming.
