Home to one of Seattle’s most popular beaches, Alki has something for everyone. Nestled in the most northwest point of West Seattle, you can sit on Alki beach or dine outside at one of the many local restaurants and shops  lining the boardwalk to watch sailboats come out of Elliott Bay with stunning views of the Olympic Mountains. The beach and surrounding area are more popular in the summer, with picnics, bonfires, and impromptu volleyball games, and members of Seattle’s robust running community doing their weekend jogs enjoying the picturesque landscape. Take the walking path east of Alki Beach Park and you’ll come to Hamilton Park with the best view of the Seattle skyline that the area offers. Enjoy a sunny day at Marination Ma’Kai or Salty’s on Alki, rent a kayak, or even swim the Polar Plunge in February! Alki is the best place to explore and try new things.
