Mile-long Baker Beach lies at the foot of rugged serpentine cliffs west of the Golden Gate. Large waves, undertow and rip currents make the beach unsafe for swimming, but it provides panoramic views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Marin Headlands and Lands End. You can fish or check out the shorelife along the beach and rocky shoreline. Restrooms and picnic tables are nearby.

We went to Baker Beach for the views of the Golden Gate Bridge. It was a very chilly day so we didn't go in the water and the beach wasn't very crowded. Baker Beach is a nude beach, so beware of that before you take the kids there!

One of the main spots to have SF iconic view. There is public beach access with parking area close to the beach. Take a walk around to get some pictures.

Actually visited a few months further back in May 2014. Possibly one of the best places to have a rocking photo with the Golden Gate Bridge at the background.:) really cold out there in May though. Was amazed that there were still a few people swimming! It's cool.:)

We were taking a road trip with our four dogs and needed a place for them to run and stretch their legs. This was perfect! We saw the Golden Gate Bridge from this beautiful beach. There was easy and free parking, and clean porta potties, too! We went back twice!

Came back to San Francisco from Tahoe. Stopped here to see the Golden Gate Bridge. It was a bright sunny day with NO FOG. Got some great pics of the bridge. Would go back when we had more time to stay.

This beach is pretty easily accessed, has a great view of the bay and Golden Gate Bridge. Close parking as well. The beach has room to sit and relax. Very fun!

The only reason why you need to visit this place is because of the view. The view is spectacular. Works well as a photoshoot location.
