A rocky outcrop above town - beautiful views to the west, and also to the east (Mt Baker). Watch the ships enter the bay, see the lights come on in Anacortes after sunset. We loved it!

We drove up just to see. Nice little spot overlooking the marina and bay. Large rocks to sit on and just enjoy the view

The drive up the mountain was scenic and beautiful. A must do while in the area. The view looking out over Anacordes is extraordinary!

One of the reviewers nailed this, Cap Sante if graded as a park need improvement. Cap Sante as a view point is great, bring your camera.

Along the shore is a paved walking path that leads from the parking lot to the point where there is a large gazebo and picnic tables.

The views were really nice from Cap Sante. It was fun to watch the boats go in and out of the harbor. It was our first stop in Anacortes and we've gone back a few times since. It's an awesome place to watch the sunset, especially if you climb a bit onto the rocks and look toward the west.

Other reviewers have given a nice description, I'll just ad that it's a short and worthwhile drive and you can take a short hike for a different perspective. If you're in Anacortes, you may as well check it out. There are no services here.

Spent a couple of hours walking the piers, enjoying the many sail and luxury boats. They even had a pianist playing as you entered the main pier. Public restrooms and restaurant were also available.

Climb a path at the end of the paved trail behind the gazebo to exposed basalt outcroppings to see a panorama of Fidalgo Bay, Mt. Baker, Glacier Peak, and across the Sound to the San Juans and beyond. Breath-taking, especially at sunrise or sunset!

Drive or walk till the end of this hill and you'll have the best view of Anacortes, the refineries and Fidalgo bay! No restrooms or benches or areas for kids, just a great place to take beautiful pictures!
