The Berkeley Marina and Pier should not be missed if in the area. The views from the Marina toward the San Francisco skyline is stunning. It is an almost pastoral scene snuggled in a great metropolitan area. The pier juts directly into the bay with unforgettable views of the Bay Bridge and San Francisco in the distance!

It could be better utilized this tourist point of view. Not easily found some point of information and there is a service to visitors. A pity! Seems to be reserved for the guest of the Hilton and the Marina partners.

We enjoy going to Berkeley marina area for its beautiful and stunning views of the San Francisco skyline. Its a popular area to go to see the views as well as to walk the fishing pier and then walk by the marina area. Also, as it can be windy coming across the bay, its a popular place to fly kites....

Berkeley Marina hosts OCSC...one of the finest sailing schools in the country. Perfect location on the East Bay, outstanding well maintained boats, and staff and instructors that set the standards for excellence.

This area of Berkeley is one of the most fantastic areas in the Bay Area for families, romantic couples or just plain walkers looking for tremendous views and plenty of activities. I always start out (as I am a walker) at Cesar Chavez Park with a loop around the park where Kites are flying, dogs are playing, and the views... More

We stayed on the Berkley Marina at the Double Tree. The walking paths are great and very few people were taking advantage of this area. You can see many of the San Francisco attractions from the marina edge there like the Golden Gate Bridge on a clear day.

This is a great place to walk. We enjoyed watching the pelicans diving. Level pathways along the marina make for an easy stroll for all ages.

A good spot to eat when you're in the hotel, the bar is great, the outside patio beautiful and just feet from the marina and a plethora of sail and motor boats, large and small.

Nice Pathways, Easy Hikes. Lots of Benches. Grand Vistas. Easy Parking, Worked well for me for morning walks from the nearby hotel. Note also you can catch the ferry and get a lift to SF as well!
