This is as good as it gets for "beaches" here in Seattle. The sand stretches almost endlessly along Elliott Bay, offering plenty of room for folks to spread out and lounge around if it's warm out. You must go to Alki at least once. I mean, it's a PNW beach with a beachwalk, so if you don't like walking or cold beaches, it's probably not going to stir your pot very much. But, it's a cool area with a cool feel and some coffee shops and eateries along the way. Free parking. And, a nice, long path you can take in one direction for quite awhile and perhaps catch some cool views of Seattle from the south, and walk back and get your coffee. You might even loop up into the neighborhoods and get caught in some of the hills and see some of the beautiful homes people own that you can look at. All in all, a long, relaxing, pleasant experience
