We utilized AirBNB for lodging during our visit to Seattle and selected a place located on Alki Beach. I HIGHLY recommend Alki Beach. It is a 10-minute drive to downtown Seattle, and it's so nice to sit on the 2nd floor of Duke's Chowder House and watch the sun set, people walking their dogs,Seattle skyline, etc. We plan to return to Seattle as we didn't see it all, and we will stay on Alki Beach.

The best place to see Seattle in the whole is from Alki Beach! What more do you need to know? It is also the hop off point for the passenger only ferry to Seattle. Never a bad time to see it!

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.
