Relax at Baker Beach

San Francisco Baker Beach

Added by Lyndsay Erickson

  • The sun hasn't been out for a while, but it's out now, go to the beach!
  • Great spot to post up with friends and crack open a few cold ones with a view of the Golden Gate
  • Duration: half-full day

If you're looking for a beach that's a little more protected and scenic than Ocean Beach, then Baker Beach is it. Bring a cooler and some burritos out and kick it with your friends. On a sunny weekend day in SF, there's usually a sizable crowd here, so if you need parking, be sure to get here early. If you're not into the whole nudist thing, stay away from the north end of the beach closest to the Golden Gate. If you're looking to bring some food to the beach, Gordos at 24th and Clement will keep you full for the day.

This is an awesome spot for body surfing - bring your wetsuit, fins, and/or a hand plane if there are waves.

The town of Mendocino is as charming and quaint as one can find. It is no wonder why it was pegged as the perfect location spot to film the series Murder She Wrote.

This beach is really easy to get to. Just follow Pierce Point Road until you see the sign to the beach. It's an easy hike down from the parking lot.
