♬ Above the Blue and Windy Sea 🎶

“There’s a beach in San Francisco?” We get that a lot! In fact, it’s only a very short jaunt from Fisherman’s Wharf to this popular stretch of sand! Simply head east on Jefferson Street, and you’ll find Aquatic Park Historic Cove and the exceptional city-side Aquatic Park beach.

This entire area is part of the National Park Service’s San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park. Lots of  words…even more fun!

Here you can bike, run, swim, paddle board, play in the sand, or just watch the world go by:

The next time you’re in the City by the Bay, you can use this handy National Park Service site to help plan your visit to San Francisco’s Aquatic Park Cove beach: San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park. And you’ll, too, be singing ~ “I Left My Heart in San Francisco. High on a hill, it calls to me…”

🎶 “My love waits there in San Francisco
Above the blue and windy sea
When I come home to you, San Francisco
Your golden sun will shine for me”♬

 “I Left My Heart In San Francisco” by George Cory and Douglass Cross

Aquatic Park Beach, San Francisco, California

San Francisco is one of our favorite American cities.  You just can’t run out of things to do in the City by the Bay.  There’s Alcatraz and Fisherman’s Wharf, the Golden Gate Bridge and AT&T Park.  Most of San Francisco’s best attractions seem to be within a stone’s throw of San Francisco Bay or the Pacific Ocean. One of our family’s favorite spots is Aquatic Park Beach, right there, in the center of it all.

Aquatic Park Historic Landmark District lies due west of Fisherman’s Wharf. Along with the Maritime Museum, and the Hyde Street Pier, it is part of the San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park.  Just head west on Jefferson. Aquatic Park Beach is impossible to miss!  The entire beach area offers beautiful views of the Golden Gate Bridge, the bay, and the city.  The family friendly beach is open to the public. It rests on the shoreline of Aquatic Park Cove where you’ll find hearty swimmers in every season. The water temperatures range from  lows  near 50° midwinter, to the middle 60s in late summer. Distance swimmers are regulars here in the cold water, with non-motorized and sail/auxiliary boats being the only boats allowed in Aquatic Park Cove.

Now that you have finished playing in the sand and splashing each other at Aquatic Park Beach, are you looking for something else “coastal” to do in San Francisco?  You might just want to head over to Pier 39 to watch the California Sea Lions put on a show.  They’re quite entertaining! ~Enjoy~
