Location, location, location! ~Baker Beach, San Francisco

Posted by Jody on July 27, 2012

Vacationers flock to San Francisco, California in droves.  According to what I’ve read, somewhere near 16,000,000 people visit The City by the Bay every year! The iconic Golden Gate Bridge, Fisherman’s Wharf, Pier 39, the ever popular cable cars, and Chinatown are just a few of the top destinations for tourists and locals, alike.

Beach enthusiasts can add Baker Beach to their San Francisco must-do list.  It’s a wonderful, wide, sandy urban beach, lined with uber-expensive homes and surrounded by million dollar views!

Although there are warning signs about the dangers of swimming or wading along this strand, there were a surprising number folks in the water on our last outing. The day Greg and I visited, the sand was dotted with happy families strolling, picnicking, and fishing.  You’ll find a picnic area with tables, grills, and restrooms at the east end of the parking lot.

Be forewarned (or be free), the far north end of Baker Beach is popular with clothing-optional sunbathers.

Grab a fresh round of San Francisco sourdough and then toast your buns at Baker Beach!

  1. Great pics! That beach looks beautiful and refreshing! How nice it would be to go and cool off.

    Shhh… I used to go to this beach back in the 70s when seemingly not too many other people knew about it. 😉

      Sorry, the secret’s definitely out. I was actually surprised by how many people were there – these photos are from January!
