Here you can take in a Panoramic View and get some incredible Postcard Shots of the San Francisco Skyline...and it's free. One can drive to the Island from the San Francisco side and not even have to pay the Toll, as it is just halfway cross the span of the Bridge. You really get the sense of just how beautiful... More

We caught the 108 bus bus as it's only a short ride of about 15 minutes. You really do get to see SF from a different perspective from one side and the new part of the Bay Bridge from the other. Don't miss the flea market that's held here on the last weekend of the month.

A friend and I took the 108 bus over to Treasure Island one evening for a bit of night photography at the Dancing Bliss statue. Phenomenal views of San Francisco! And Marco Cochrane’s Bliss Dance is just so hypnotic. Great artwork! I'm so glad I got to see it.

I did nothing else but drive over to this island but it was worth it just to see the SF skyline & Bay Bridge at night! I think there may be other stuff to do on this man-made Treasure Island so let me know !

We tried to visit to Treasure Island for new year fire works this year. Every year I visited to different place which locate more far. In front of you, you can see nice fireworks from Treasure Island. But so many people so that you should keep you place before 10:30pm. Also if you park your car on street, around 10pm... More

At the last minute we decided to NOT rent a car and drive to sonoma for wine tasting, but instead just take users from our hotel in downtown out to treasure island. We went on a Sunday over a holiday, so some wineries were closed, but we found three very close together and thoroughly enjoyed them. This island was a... More

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
