Love the views and activities at the Berkeley Marina. Kite Flying, off-leash dog walking (Cesar Chavez Park).. Alas, the Berkeley Pier is now closed indefinitely..but still lots to do. Kayaking, wind surfing, etc. And the views... amazing!!

The Berkeley Marina is fun to check out just to look out at the water across to SF. But, you can go fishing off the pier, rent a boat nearby or bring your Kayak to paddle in the Bay section; there is a whole section which is like a bay and it's shallow. I've bicycled down here. You can bring... More

The most beautiful sea view in the east bay. Come here to walk and to enjoy and watch the kites and clear your mind.

If you're lucky (or plucky) enough to dock your boat here, you will find kindred spirits who share the joys of the sea. There is definitely a sense of camaraderie, and respect with a low-key ambiance. Whether you're sailing on 7m or 37m, you're made to feel welcome.

This Marina was a highlight of my Berkeley trip. Every evening I walked around the Marina and surrounding park paths easily logging 10 miles a day! The pier alone is 5 miles out and back. Always felt safe. Plenty of doggie bag stations if you like to walk your dog. DIdn't see one off leash dog either which is nice.... More

The Berkeley Marina is beautiful. If you are looking for a place to have lunch and you like Chinese food, there is the Hong Kong East Ocean Seafood Restaurant that serves dim sum or tea cake at lunch time. Very popular and is definitely crowded on the weekend unless you go as soon as it opens, call to see if... More

Free parking and a lovely park with benches. Waled around for 30 minutes, watched the sailboats and just soaked up the sun. Great end to a workday!

This is the perfect place to come and relax. There is a delicious restaurant called Skates On The Bay. You can bring your pet and go for a long easy walk/ride a bike. You get a great view of the bay and people sailing, wind surfing and kayaking. Just remember to bring a sweater. It is windy. There is also... More
