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

A haunting relic with fine views of the ocean and an eerie atmosphere. Stay on the coastal path for amazing vistas, although the terrain might be a challenge for the unfit.

I highly recommend visiting the Sutro Baths if in San Francisco, The view of the ocean is just magnificent as well as the SF bridge and the channel into the SF Bay. Take a self guided tour and learn how many shipwrecks occurred in the bay before it was made safer for navigation. Take a walk down the stairs and... More

We started at this location, with the intention of seeing the Pacific ocean. The baths are really cool to look at and imagine what use to be there. We didn't actually go all the way down to the baths, and chose instead to walk down to Lands End first and hit the baths on the way back. It's a cool... More

There is not much to see at the Sutro Baths, but ruins of what used to be a glorious place I am sure! The surroundings are beautiful and great to photograph, however, there was one thing I was *really* disappointed about....the TRASH! It was everywhere! For a historic place and a national park I found that people did not respect... More

As other reviewers have mentioned, it is a hike to get back up once down in these ruins but boy is it worth the hike. Great photos, incredible views and parking was a snap.

This is a nice place to come either to do some exercise or just for the history of SF. The steps are kinda hard on the way back if you are out of shape that's for sure, they are not impossible but a nice hike. If you are in town and you want to take nice pictures then you should... More

Sutro Baths is located right on the Pacific Ocean and next to the Cliff House restaurant. There is a restroom there accessible to the public. Parking can be a challenge and we parked at least a mile away down by the beach and it is quite a steep uphill to get to the ruins. Once there however, it was interesting... More
