Picnic Area

Warmer salt water swimming. Relatively shallow swimming area. Easy access in Alameda.

This beach has some of the warmest ocean water in the bay area. The swimming area is also fairly shallow, making it a safer, more protected swimming area. Be sure to check the link below for updated water conditions, especially if it has rained recently.

There is a bathhouse with changing rooms on the west end of the beach so you can clean up after your swim. Enjoy the picnic area and bbq pits if you're planning to make a day of it. If you're not up for swimming, there are also kayak and raft rentals available at the beach. Unfortunately no dogs allowed on the beach.
