    I’ve been to Alki Beach on many occasions, and it is absolutely beautiful. I would highly recommend it to anyone!

  2. Definitely agree. The combination of a very long stretch of walkable beach and exercise path, little shops and restaurants, community feel, spectacular views, and the “Northwest Riviera” of condos and old beach shacks all make for an enjoyable walk by the Sound.
