Beautiful lanscape and views of the bridge and surrounding area. The sea is wonderful to just watch and listen, trust me you wouldn't want to go in, even if you could!! Reminded me of the lands end in Cornwall, UK.

We just went there for the view and to sit and relaxe. We still don't understand why it is so quiet overthere as the view is amazing. We expected lots of people. It might get busier now......

Fun well marked train for a woodsy hike through the beachfront area to view the Golden Gate Bridge, There are a couple of significant stairways to navigate so not suitable for strollers or disabled hikers to get the whole way in. Once at the end of the hike, the view of the Golden Gate Bridge is beautiful.

What a gem of a place. Located just up the hill around Ocean Beach, the Cliff House restaurant and the Sutro Baths, this place is a great place to hike or just check out the views of the ocean and the surrounding area. Just breathtaking. This was a highlight of the SF trip.

There is a large parking lot if you didn't take public transport. Gorgeous views of the ocean. A beautiful place to catch a sunset. Hike the Coastal Trail for more amazing views down below of waves crashing against massive rocks and the beaches below all with the Golden Gate Bridge in the Distance. Don't miss the hidden labyrinth at Eagle's... More

You can take bus 38 from downtown to Lands End, where you have great views of the Pacific on one hand, and the Golden Gate Bridge on the other. If you go down the stairs you can see the remains of an old swimming pool and bath. There is also a fine hiking trail all the way to Golden Gate.... More

We only visited this area on the sightseeing bus so did not stay long. It looked like a lovely area for a picnic.

Parking lot, one of the free things to do in SF. Absolutely beautiful view of the Golden Gate Bridge with fog hovering over it. Bring binoculars if you have them and a camera with a long lens for framable photos.

We visited on an overcast day and the area was beautiful and mysterious looking. The beach looked to be a mile wide! The name "Lands End" seemed to fit perfectly. There were a few people in wet suits enjoying the water, some groups having picnics, some flying kites and some just walking the beach. It's very desolate looking but beautiful... More

A terrific spot to take a stroll but bring along a jacket and sweater as the fog rolls in and you may be cold or not be able to see. better yet, check the weather report and if it is clear get you camera as there are some amazing sights of wonderful homes. Unfortunately lately there has been an influx... More
