Description:

Redondo Beach in the Greater Seattle area is a magnet for rain-weary Washingtonians yearning for fresh air and exercise. In this picturesque enclave of waterfront homes, joggers and strollers fill the boardwalk overlooking scuba divers, snorkelers and anglers in the waters below. The boat launch at Redondo ranks among the most frequently used in the area, adjacent to the fishing pier and Salty’s Seafood Grill. Redondo Beach is in the southern part of the Greater Seattle metropolitan area, resting in a curve of the Puget Sound coastline. The community actually lies within the boundaries of the city of Des Moines, about 15 minutes from SeaTac International airport, near Saltwater State Park. Drivers can reach it by exiting Interstate 5 at South 272nd Street and following the road as it runs along the waterfront. The city of Des Moines operates the two-lane public boat launch at Redondo, offering easy access to Puget Sound fishing opportunities for those living on the south side of Seattle. It provides 360 feet of side tie dock and 150 feet of floating breakwater in this sometimes windy area. A large parking area across from the pier allows boaters to pay a combined fee for boat launch and parking. The marina office in Des Moines also offers a yearly pass. The pier at Redondo serves as a popular gathering spot for experienced anglers as well as novices and families. Many “southsiders” have tall tales about their very first fishing pole being dipped into the waters at Redondo Beach, where salmon, sole and perch are known to inhabit the waters. Crab fishing is also prevalent here during crab season in summer and autumn. A marine center with interactive exhibits at the pier has several large aquariums, and Salty’s operates a seafood stall next door in the summer months, offering freshly cooked fish and shrimp, as well as ice cream and snacks.
