Alki Beach Location:
West Seattle juts out into Elliot Bay directly West of downtown Seattle. It can be easily reached by car via the West Seattle Bridge. From downtown Seattle, follow the signs and find your way to I5 South. Take the exit for West Seattle. Once across the bridge, turn right onto Harbor Ave SW, and this will lead you around the tip of Duwamish Head, and onto Alki point. Parking can be a bit dicey on the weekend, but with patience you will probably find street parking not too far from the main strip along Alki Ave SW. During the summer, leave the car behind and take Metro’s water taxi. The Taxi leaves from a location between piers 55 and 56, and for two dollars (each way) gives you a twelve minute ride across the bay. At Sea Crest Park, the taxi’s West Seattle terminus, you will find Metro’s Free DART shuttle is perfectly timed to pick you up and take you to Alki Beach or to West Seattle Junction.
