The Alki Beach boutique boasts a bounty of women's, men's, and children's clothing and swimwear. Familiar beach brands bounce alongside smaller swimwear labels in the cheerful shop. Buy the special gentleman in your life a pair of black-and-white Quicksilver board shorts ($52) for his surf across the fjords of Bergen or suit up in a colorful Billabong Indian paradise bikini ($86) and be prepared for impromptu beach romances or fierce swim-fashion walk-offs. Coastal also has gale-shielding coverups and fashionable footwear to protect delicate soles from harsh granules of sand or ant insurrections (black-and-pink Reef Seaside sandals cost $24).
