Baker Beach, San Francisco

4.6
#8 of 104 in Outdoors in San Francisco
While it remains too dangerous for swimming, Baker Beach is one of the best spots in the city to take in views of San Francisco's iconic bridge. This public beach stretches along the Pacific just northwest of the city, which makes it easily accessible by various modes of transportation. Keep in mind that the northernmost section of the beach tends to attract nudists. A visit to Baker Beach represents just the start of the adventure when you use our San Francisco trip planning app to plot your vacation.

  • It is a beach in the city of San Francisco, in a natural environment, at the entrance of the bay. But the highlights are the views of the Golden Gate, in Madoxviajes we recommend you whenever you dispongáis a car in your visit to San Francisco.

  • I wouldn't necessarily have expected a beach before my visit to San Francisco, but this beach is really great. A nice place for a walk or to relax. The view of the Golden Gate Bridge, which is quite close from here, is particularly great.

  • Want beach, waves, forests, AND great views of the Golden Gate Bridge? Go here! Amazing place to just relax on the beach, or to take some awesome pictures of the Golden Gate Bridge! If you've had too much beach, don't worry... it's right next to some very nice vegetation to walk by... not to mention the historical battery site. Pretty cool place to visit in San Francisco. ca!
  • Amazing views! I really liked the trail - you can walk from Baker beach all way to the Golden Gate Bridge! Nice stroll! Highly recommended if you have some free time in SF!
