Spent time relaxing, viewing the water from above and walking toward the Golden Gate. Nature and perfect views! A must do!

What a beautiful setting near the heart of San Francisco with georgeous views of the ocean, Golden Gate Bridge, cypress trees and the remnants of the famous Sutro baths! It is an easy stroll, with some uphill/downhill trekking, but well worth the visit. Some of my favorite photos of my visit to San Francisco were taken here. I have attached... More

A beautiful setting, easy path to stroll. Cliff House, at the start of the walk, was not quite the architectural building we expected, but it does have great views. If you're up for it, keep walking a bit longer into the Sea Cliff neighborhood. Gorgeous!

We went in the afternoon and stayed until it was almost dark and were lucky to have so many colors of the sky and the pacific that it is indescribable through words! A must for nature lovers as the Cyprus tree line around provides a perfect setting for a good walk in the woods!

There's the beach, you can see ship wrecks when the tide is low, what is left of the Sutro baths, the cliff house and the Golden Gate Park. A must see in SF.

Wonderful hike from Lands End Lookout (visitor center) to Eagle's Point Overlook. It took at least 2 hours, allowing time to explore the Sutro baths and cave, walk the upper Sutro bath path, and go down to the Mile Rock Beach. Lots of stairs that I wasn't expecting, but a wonderful way to spend the afternoon. Glorious views of the... More

We had one day in San Francisco and the thought of fighting with the crowds to do the usual cable cars and other touristy things didn't appeal so we drive out to Lands End. Loved the new Visitor Center and walked in both directions toward and away from the Golden Gate, about 2 miles total. Beautiful views and though it... More

The view on the ocean is amazing and listen to the noise made by waves and seagulls. Nature is all around, and if you want to go further wear trainers to easily walk on the trail to cover the 1.6 mile distance to Eagle point. From this path, you have access to hidden Rocky beaches right there in San Francisco.... More

Depending on your location and planning, best to visit and take pictures all together with a bus tour or some other car-pool travelling. A good spot to take some sketches and photos of the waterline too.

We loved the view although we weren't prepared enough for the cold temperatures so we didn't walk down to the water. I would have really liked to, so plan accordingly. Sunny and over 70 degrees downtown and it was in the low 50s and overcast at Land's End.
