It is already the season for Marination Makai

When it is 80 degrees in April, I like to walk along Alki Beach and enjoy the view of the Puget Sound.

A few nights ago we parked close to Marination and walked 2 hours after which we indulged ourselves with Beer, Margarita, and Chardonnay at Marination Makai.

My kids loved the Fish and chips with the miso tartar and the rest of us shared kimchi fried rice (spicy), pork sliders, and spicy pork tacos. I always order fish tacos and the green salad, I love the dressing and the peanuts on the top.

We arrived too late for the Happy hour (3pm-6pm) and it was a little bit dark.

Good to know: We had a dog with us and were able to have him with us on the patio.

Around Alki Beach

What to do around Alki Beach?

If you have out of town visitors, there is a great view point above Alki Beach you may not know about. On your way to Alki Beach, take California Way SW just after the Water Taxi Dock on your left and a bit higher you’ll find Hamilton Viewpoint Park. Click on the address below to get the directions.

Hamilton Viewpoint Park 1531 California Way SW

If you are lucky, when wandering along the beach, you can say hi to the seals… but always from a distance.

And for a casual lunch or dinner, stop at Marination Makai. Read my post here: Marination Makai

Marination Makai 1660 Harbor Ave SW, Seattle

And if like me, you have a thing for ferries, sit on the beach, you will be in the front row.

If you look for a more quiet Beach, pass Alki Point and the Lighthouse to go to Beach Drive SW.

Almost Summer
at Marination Makai

If you are around Alki Beach on a sunny or at least clear day, I have a suggestion for you. Marination Makai with Hawaiian specialities, umbrellas, deck, and an awesome view of the Seattle skyline is the perfect spot.

And for a little adventure, if you come from Seattle Downtown, take the Water Taxi. Marination is just in front of you at the Water Taxi Dock.
