The views are great a good walk can be had around the harbor and waterfront and a very good restaurant with working fireplace to warm up after being in the fresh bay breezes called Skates. Even when not hungry I stop in to warm up by the fire drinking one of their signature martinis.

Great location to view San Francisco. Doubletree Hotel 4 star but a bit basic. Sits next to a Marina and Nature Park with Burrowing Owls in October

The walking area at this site is ideal. You can walk right next to and around the bay and get exercise, fresh air, and lovely views.

What a beautiful spot to enjoy the view of the city across the bay. Quiet and charming. The sunset alone was worth the trip.

The Berkeley Marina is surrounded by Parkland on 3 sides and San Francisco Bay to the west. It's a great place to spend a day walking, sunbathing, or having a picnic. There are buses from downtown Berkeley. The views of San Francisco, Marin, the Bay, and the East Bay Hills are simply fabulous. It's a wonderful place to watch the... More

Berkeley Marina is a fairly quiet place for a nice walk and enjoying the view of the Bay. There are several parks and also walking paths / sidewalk. It's pretty out of the way so you won't be dealing with crowds.

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!
