You kind of had to know what you are looking at, or do your research before you go. There is not a lot to see, except for the edges of the pools and the water at the edge of the ocean. We saw it on a hop-on hop-off tour group and they told us it was the bath house and... More

Hubby and I were looking for something different to do and decided to give Sutro Baths a look. After a bus ride we were in front of Lands End Lookout which has a visitors center were you can buy stuff and a small restaurant. We walked down the path to Sutro Baths. It is hard to visualize what Sutro Baths... More

We didn`t schedule a visit to this place but we found it random while we´re visiting Presidio in San Francisco. The location is at once beautiful and mysterious. You can walk on the ruins of the former swimming pool, discover the mystical cave, and enjoy the amazing view to the end of the world. It´s definitely not the quietest place,... More

My friends and I started our Lands End hike at the Sutro Baths. What you see is basically the ruins of a now defunct public swimming area that wasn't making enough money and was left to ruin over time. What you see almost look like ancient ruins in a European city. The ruins look out onto the water and I... More

Be prepared for some serious hiking. There are stairs, trails, concrete blocks, etc. I am glad I did it but bring water, wear good shoes and a snack. I was able to see a STUNNING sunset here overlooking the cliffs, the rocks etc. The bath ruins themselves are interesting because of their history but not necessarily the main reason I... More

Park at the upper lot and travel down to the view area to see the baths. Great hike and the view of the pacific and then walk back up and have breakfast at the restaurant at the top of the hill.

This is one of the "real" San Francisco spots. Great views, close to the park and easy to get to. Louis' is still pretty good, but the Seal Rock Inn has the best omelets.

I had been interested in seeing this once I read Corey Doctorow's "Little Brother," since Sutros Baths was the meeting place where the characters held an key-exchange party before beginning their battle against Big Brother. Although these are called Baths, these salt water pools are quite large and it was definitely a pretty creative endeavor. A shame they aren't still... More

I recommend this place to get an amazing view of the Pacific ocean from different view points. The coastal trail, the cave view and the historical relics are a joy to visit. I also took the trail to visit Land's End, Eagle Point and continued further to visit the Golden Gate Bridge by walk. Wind experienced here is amazing. Only... More
