Beautiful for biking!

Winding through the chaparral and dense forests while periodically peeking out to bay views is spectacular! Recommend going during the weekday to avoid some of the crowds. 1 star aff for a fee based system for day use.

Sunny, Sandy, Bay Area Beach!

Alameda is a great spot. The beaches are sandy and the water is not too cold. Remember that it is bay water, and check the water conditions before you go in. I like to go further down the shoreline where it is less crowded. Good for summer swims and reading on the beach.
