Bonfire at Muir Beach

Muir Beach - Search Nearby - Added by Clare Healy

This is a quick drive from San Francisco and a great place to take in the sunset next to a beach bonfire. You can bring your dog (on-leash) so it doesn't get much better.

Take in a scenic sunset and enjoy the warmth of a bonfire on the beach! Muir Beach changes the number of fire pits it has seasonally. May through November, the beach offers 6 fire pits, and in the colder months (December through April), there are 3 fire pits on the beach toward the south end of the parking lot.

This spot is a little further drive for city folk than Ocean Beach, but on the plus side, you'll probably be beating the crowds in SF. Keep in mind that the beach closes 1 hour after sunset. Bottom line, if you're looking for an isolated spot to take in the sunset, build a bonfire, and hang out with some good friends, then this could be it! For additional information on the area, head to the Golden Gate National Recreation Area page.

If you're looking to pick up some last minute supplies, you can head to the Safeway in Mill Valley.

One of my favorites!

Bonfires on this beach are my favorite! It tends to be quieter than some other beaches. It's also quite windy and cold, but that's perfect bonfire weather! Definitely note that the rangers will come by and kick you out 1 hour after sunset, so you will probably want to get your bonfire started early. Enjoy!

Beautiful Beach

Muir Beach is stunning, just like all of West Marin! Just be prepared for the windy and sometimes scary (if you're afraid of heights) road between there and Mill Valley. Make sure you have gas and supplies, since you can't get those at the beach. Prepare for cold wind and have a blast!

You'll love who you are when you are in Marin!

Marin County is just a little out there. As in one famous bridge away from San Francisco. And right next door to the vineyards and Napa and Sonoma. Closer than you could ever imagine to everything that's unique in this clever corner of California. Take a vacation from the typical vacation
