Enjoy the outdoors under a spectacular view of the Golden Gate Bridge at Crissy Field. Known as the Presidio’s front door, the former air base-turned-into-a-park is a favorite recreational area for both locals and visitors. The area is clean, safe, and well maintained and is particularly popular with cyclists and joggers. If you want to relax, you can enjoy the sandy beach or go for a picnic. The kids enjoy wide-open areas to play, while the pet owners can take their dogs off the leash and let them splash in the surf. Bring sunglasses and layered clothes, because the San Francisco weather can be chilly and windy, even in the summer months. Using our world travel planner, San Francisco attractions like Crissy Field can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
Crissy Field reviews
This is a beautiful, green area on the coast with a great view of the Golden Gate Bridge. Dd not leave anything in your car here. It is a theft haven.

From here you have great views of the Golden Gate Bridge. We got a coffee at the cafe there and sat outside watching the world go by!

I love this place. It is amazing to go for a walk that leads you to the Golden Gate Bridge. The beach is easy accessible and clean. You have a beautiful view of the Golden Gate, Alcatraz Island, SF skylines and also the Bay Area. You have a good parking area for cars, campers. There is a cafe nearby and bathrooms. I highly suggest it.
A nice, flat walk along the beach with views of the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz. Very popular with dog owners. Swimming is at your own risk, but you and your dog can take a dip.
