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.

Nice walk along the beach with a view of GG from an different angle. Expect to see nudist sunbathers as you walk towards the bridge.

I was surprised to find such an amazing beach in the city. It's in a beautiful area and once at the beach you have wonderful views of the bay bridge, Marin and the ocean. It can get blustery, so wrap up warm if walking along the beach, however it's well worth a stroll. There is a good amount of free... More

This place is a gem. One can get the best views of the Golden Gate Bridge from a simple walk down the beach.. And if you are lucky..like I was...you can spot dolphins enjoying their swim along the shorelines. Pose for photos or laze around the beach in those beachy ensembles. This place is a sure winner for all...Kids and... More

The view here is extra creamy. You can also camp and picnic and gay dudes like to sunbathe here nude too. Beware of nude dudes.

This is by far the best location to view the golden gate bridge by sunset time. Go there if you want to capture great pictures or just to enjoy a beautiful sunset location

I think this is the best beach in San Francisco with the best view of the Golden Gate Bridge. Great location to take pictures.

We arrived at Baker beach around 4:45pm on a Sunday afternoon and it wasn't that packed which was nice. It was alittle overcast and breezy. The beach is clean and had some wood logs on the sand which were being used by some people as benches. It is a nice stretch of beach for a walk and the view of... More

My wife and I really enjoyed walking Baker Beach all the way to the Golden Gate Bridge! We saw sunbather's hangout locations, but no sunbathers were out on this cold day. BEST photo opportunities for the Golden Gate Bridge!!
