Nice views

The views are very nice, but parking is limited. Good place for sunrise or sunset. Ignore the nearby factories.

This location is one of the most beautiful views in Anacortes. The view of the marina is spot on. Worth the visit.

Cap Sante Park is a little difficult to find. Without GPS, you have to follow small signs to the park from downtown and then drive up some winding, narrow residential roads in the northeast part of the town. Man, is it worth it when you get there, though! Cap Sante Park offers one of the best views of Fidalgo Island,... More

I almost think this place can be easily overlooked. I only learned about it as hubby and I were having lunch at Anthony's Restaurant and I happened to see movement on top of the hill and I saw people out there. I asked our waitress about it and went to explore Cap Sante Park first thing in the morning the... More

Great lookout but not much else. Not open late. Go for a few minutes and take some pics. Interesting drive through nice homes on the way there.

On the drive up to Cap Sante you will see some beautiful homes with views to die for. Our view was just gorgeous in Saturday. The air was clear wnd being winter not much competition for parking spaces. Enjoy your time here. Breath in the fresh sea air and soak in the sun when it is shining.

Cap Sante Park has an excellent view of Mt. Baker, the Cascades, Cap Sante Marina and parts of downtown Anacortes. On a really clear day you can see Mt. Rainier. It is a great spot to watch the sunrise or sunset and there are trails that lead down to the marina on the west side of the viewpoint.

One of Skagit County's great visual perches, about a 20 minute hike up a substantial incline but well worth the hike. I highly recommend the viewpoint to get a view of Fidalgo Island and a seaport city in action plus definitely at sunset. Been there a few times over the years...

A short drive from downtown Anacortes, the Cap Sante Park sits at the top of a small hill filled with cute houses on the lower side and lots of very healthy looking madrone trees on the upper half. From here you can see the refinery to the north east, the historic downtown to the west, the marina right down below... More
