Baker Beach

Beach-goers and View of Golden Gate Bridge and Marin Headlands from Baker Beach, San Francisco, California

Baker Beach
Baker Beach is San Francisco's most scenic beach — and one of the most popular. Its one-mile stretch of sandy beach lies at the foot of rugged cliffs and steep bluffs. The vantage point from the beach offers magnificent panoramic views of the Golden Gate Bridge and Marin Headlands.

NOTE: Large waves, dangerous surf and powerful riptides make Baker Beach unsafe for swimming. If you do take a dip, be prepared — the water is COLD.
