What people say

"excellent views of downtown and both mountain ranges. extremely popular beach park. always busy in the summer, packed with people playing beach games, bbq-ing, bonfires etc. parking is non-existant. there is no designated parking only street parking. be prepared to walk up to 10-15 min to meet your group. "
"There are public bathrooms at Alki Beach, and plenty of spaces to stop for a break — grab a bite at a beachfront restaurant or plop down on a bench or in the sand."

"A serene beach with great views of the main downtown Seattle area. Beach space is rocky but was very empty the day we visited. "
