I want to say, this is my peace place. It's one of those beautiful places so close to the city, yet so far. It is on an island like region and the constant sounds of waves crashing against the rocks can give you some serious calm later in the night. A grand view of the San Francisco skyline with the...

This place is barren, a tiny island with nothing much. Except for a nice view by the coast. You get a panoramic view of SF for free. Not to mention, you're fts from the ocean! The rocks have a million spider webs on it though! A lot of people come here fishing. Some people even get married here. Sure, it... More

There isn't much here on the island , but it does offer a spectacular view of the Bay Bridge , the San Francisco skyline and the bay itself . Across the bay the Golden Gate Bridge is visible from a side angle in it's entirety , as is Alcatraz . There is a little concession stand at the turn around... More

We took the bus over to Treasure Island during the day and - as forewarned by our hotel concierge - there weren't a lot of places to see or things to do. The docent manning the Admiral Wilson Building was very helpful, and the building itself was rather interesting. We walked up California Avenue and ate at the Oasis Grille...a... More

For the best city lights views of the city, the bridge, nothing beats those from Treasure Island, best done at night on a clear day. You can also see the new Bay Bridge extension from here. WOW!

In January 1956 I was stationed on Treasure Island. I attended Electronics Technician school. While going to the school building, on the west side of the island, I was treated to a view I will always remember. The sun came up over the Oakland hills and the city of San Francisco shown like gold. The reflection from the windows in... More

Treasure Island offers a beautiful view of San Francisco, especially at night. It's a quaint small place to sample wine and tour an old military base.

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
