Mile-long Baker Beach lies at the foot of rugged serpentine cliffs west of the Golden Gate. Large waves, undertow and rip currents make the beach unsafe for swimming, but it provides panoramic views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Marin Headlands and Lands End. You can fish or check out the shorelife along the beach and rocky shoreline. Restrooms and picnic tables are nearby.

Our family visited Baker Beach after reading some reviews. Unfortunately the weather was not to our favour during this visit. We were hoping to catch the Golden Gate Bridge as the backdrop. However, the bridge was partially hidden by the rolling crowds leaving just part of the bridge visible. Nonetheless, it was still a lovely sight. We saw locals swimming,... More

Baker Beach was one of my "must visit" locations while travelling. The reviews all talk about the great bridge views, but there wasn't much detail on the quality of the beach itself or the "vibe", so I thought I'd cover that (yes, the bridge is a great backdrop and an excellent photo location, but there's more to a great beach...

A stunningly wonderful beach with Golden gate as backdrop. A true gem in San Francisco. I was there on early December 2016 and very lucky to get a clear blue sky day. The beach is easily reached from Union Square by Muni bus 38 (Geary) East to 25th Avenue followed North on Muni bus 29. The bus will cease right... More

lived by it & enjoyed walking there at the end of the work day. Hard to believe one can escape the hustle/bustle of the city so easily

We had a great time at the beach. The waves were huge. There is vegetation near the sandy beach. There are port-a-potties. Great view of the Golden Gate bridge.

For professional photographers like me, this is one of the perfect spots to catch shots of the Golden Gate Bridge. If you're lucky, with the winds you'll have massive waves for great shots too.

The most interesting part is the way to reach the beach. We started the walk from GG bridge and half the way through you get to see some stunning views and special part was the sand ladder. Sand ladder starts from the top and goes down till the beach all the way straight. Stunning and must visit in my opinion.... More

A nice place to relax while you enjoy the Golden Gate Bridge view in the backdrop. Ideal place to stroll and reminisce on life or just soak in the sun. Also, please note: the northern side is a clothing-optional zone.

My daughter insisted too much to go to Baker Beach, I did not want to go actually as it is a beach at the end . However it is really wonderful especially sunset time. Sunset and the Golden Gate Bridge looks wonderfull together. Should go and enjoy with a drink :)
