Create an itinerary including Baker Beach
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.

  • Home of the original burning man!!! Great view!! Love this beach, however, parking is very limited!! The porta potties are , "NOT" maintained n have a disturbing smell as you walk 10ft. Within them!! These should be cleaned on an EVERY day basis!!
  • Nice view of beach with historical golden bridge and mountains. Here parking is very limited in busy days. However today was partly C loudly so that that usually busy. We enjoy our Sunday with relaxing and peace !
