Only the ruins survive today. This can be combined with your visit to Land's End. There is a gift shop which contains books and posters depicting the original baths.

Be sure to look up the history of the Sutro Baths! Knowing the history and age I was fully able to appreciate the ruins of this massive and advance for it's time structure. Beautiful peaceful beach. When your done check out the giant camera at the Cliff House.

One of the places every tourist and local must visit. Amazing overlook into the Pacific Ocean. Waves crashing onto enormous rocks. Urban hiking and exploring at its best. The ruins of the Sutro Baths aren't Greek or Roman era, but they're exciting none-the-less. Bring you camera and explore the area.

Out with friends who had young boys. And was a perfect spot to let the kids play on the rocks, in the sand and have a swim (but be extra careful with the water. Not for amateurs). Stunning views above and below. Bring some snacks, some conveniences and spend a good part of the day enjoying a wonderful part of... More

We just decided to go on a day we had nothing planned. It's true the ruins are not much to look at but the cliff views, the climbing and the beach are great and we didn't even have time for the surrounding trails. We spent a couple of hours here. I'm glad we did!! You won't find this place on... More

Mostly destroyed ruins - you can only imagine what was there; offer some nice views and a small dead-end cave. Worth a quick stop.

This was a nice relief for our tired feet! There is a visitors center which gives information about this attraction but we opted to get down to it and just hang out and then walk on the beach. Nothing super amazing though.

This area at one time was a swimming pool with several different pools, salt water, fresh water etc. Now it is just the foundation and it is more than great and fascinating to walk around. Up top they have a museum and gift shop that is small but neat. Good adventure for all ages....

Went to the Sutro baths for the first time Saturday. Parking is free but can get a little difficult to find a spot during peek tourist seasons or just really nice days since this is also next to Lands End. The walk down and around the baths was cool, walking back up the hills and getting the birds eye view... More

We actually found these ruins accidentally. We were looking for "breakfast with a view" and the diner was right on top of the public baths ruins. The views are gorgeous and there are a lot of paths you can walk around and go on top of the cliff. The nature and ocean are unforgettable!!! Highly recommend! It was a perfect... More
