No toll charges to drive from SF across first half of Bay Bridge to Yerba Buena and Treasure Island. The summer Flea market was one of better ones to explore. Stunning views to west toward The City. Parking free, views billion dollar. Surprising how few folks know to travel here, and not just across the Golden Gate Bridge, to enjoy... More

Very quiet and peaceful place to take pictures at night. Beautiful open view of the Bay Bridge and the cityscape.

Go to Treasure Island during sunset on a clear day and get rewarded with beautiful views of the city and the Golden Gate Bridge as well as the Bay Bridge. Beautiful sunset views from the viewing point. It was really windy too!

Did you know that “Treasure Island” was built originally for the “World’s Fair” or that this was once occupied by the United States Army and Navy? This was also originally planned for the “San Francisco Airport” before the military swapped it for “Mills Field” along the San Francisco Peninsula near the city of Millbrae? A lot of “tourists” who have... More

This used to be a Naval Station and we wanted to visit because my husband used to live on this base (many years ago). I can understand why everyone wanted this station. The views are breathtaking. I do understand that there has been clean up due to some waste, but I find it very sad that San Francisco has not... More

The view of San Fran and Alcatraz from Treasure Island is pretty cool. You can also get some good shots of the Bay Bridge. I've been here a couple of times for rugby events at the San Francisco Golden Gate pitch which is on Treasure Island - very cool area. There is a wine merchant that hosts tastings here sometimes...

I was there for the wedding of my nephew and his beautiful bride. The view of San Francisco was beautiful. The whole experience was wonderful.

Treasure Island, if you visit at night, provides a glittery panoramic view of San Francisco that can take your breath away. Even without using the coin-operated viewers provided, many landmarks are visible. But who cares, when the lights are spread out in such a beautiful sparkling array at the water's edge? Here and there among the rocks a stray raccoon... More

Treasure Island offer wine tasting and eating, but it's best known for it's outstanding views of SF, especially at night. Bring your camera and a coat, as it can get very cold there. The best time to go is in the early morning when the sun is rising in the east and lights up the City. Also, at sunset when... More

First off if you don't have a car, don't bother going here. We were staying in Fisherman's Wharf and the public transit system does not make it easy to get to and from Treasure Island. The wineries won't open on weekdays and they are spread out, they also looked suspect from the outside. When we got there via bus it... More
