Habitat Beach

Habitat Beach


Open every day from 7am - 10pm.

Temporarily closed in Fall 2023 for artwork installation.

An easy walking distance from Pioneer Square and the stadiums, Habitat Beach is the perfect place to sit and enjoy the waterfront views. The beach also supports the waterfront ecosystem, including enhancing the salmon corridor by adding rocks and nearshore vegetation. 

Because the beach is a key component to Seattle’s nearshore marine habitat, some rules to keep in mind before heading down include no swimming or entering and exiting the water by personal watercraft, and packing out what you pack in. Additional rules can be found on the Friends of Waterfront Seattle website and are posted on-site. 

Habitat Beach is temporarily closed through Fall 2023 to accommodate the installation of Indigenous artwork by the Washington State Department of Transportation.
