Alki Beach Tours
Read MoreShow Less
This picturesque beach on the shore of Elliott Bay runs a narrow 2.5-mile strip between Alki Point and Duwamish Head. Known as the site of the first white settlers in Seattle, its sandy shores attract as many cyclists, joggers and bladers as beachcombers and sun worshipers and storm chasers. Public restrooms, picnic areas, an art studio and bathhouses make it the perfect destination for a day of outdoor fun with family and friends. And impressive views of the Puget Sound and Seattle skyline make it one of the most scenic strips of sand in Washington.
The beach is open to the public from 4:30 a.m. until 11:30 p.m. Parking is available along Alki Avenue SW. Water temperatures range from 46 to 56 degrees year round, making its beautiful blue waters perfect for a chilly swim.
