Enjoy Coastal Views at the Muir Beach Overlook

Muir Beach Overlook - Search Nearby - Added by Scott Kranz

Take in panoramic views of the Marin coastline and if you're lucky, get to see migrating gray whales in the fall/winter. Keep in mind, this is a pretty good (romantic) spot to take in a sunset.

The Muir Beach Overlook is one of the most convenient spots to take in an amazing view of the entire coastline, and one of the best places to catch a dramatic sunset. It’s conveniently located one mile north of Muir Beach and parking is easy. It’s a 5 minute walk down the trail to the Overlook. On a clear day, you can see San Francisco’s Sutro Tower, Mount Tam, and out to the Farallon Islands.

Be sure to pack a jacket and dress in layers if you plan to catch the sunset– it can get breezy and cold in the evenings. There are also two vault toilets located in the parking area.

Without Fog, This is Awesome

If there isn't any fog, this is a great vista to catch a sunset. The walkway pictured is great for a foreground in photos too

Hidden Gem

Gorgeous view and a true hidden gem. Stumbled upon it accidentally. Wasn't crowded at all when I got there but I might have gotten lucky.

California Always Delivers

This view is not to be missed!!

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
