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. « less

Had a great day out starting at golden gate park... then walked 2 hrs to baker beach. (lol) Well worth going to but important to note: get the 28 bus and get off at Golden Gate Bridge then walk to baker beach from there. Then walk back to the 28 for a ride to pier/fisherman wharf area. Get down to... More

We had some visitors from Croatia who wanted to see the Golden Gate Bridge from a different angle. The view from Baker Beach was great.

SF is blessed with a few beautiful beaches and this is certainly one of them. With one side near the Golden Gate Bridge, this crescent beach has fancy houses on the cliff on one side and a clothing-optional section on the other.

I very much enjoyed my recent visit to Baker Beach which was also my first time. My friends and I got breathtaking views and photos of the Golden Gate Bridge and some time to beach comb. My friend's daughter had the time of her life playing in the water and looking for agates. It was a great day. Not too... More

Get off the 29 bus at the north end of the line (Pershing Drive) and walk down the hill to a nice picnic area and a beautiful beach. Lots of people enjoying the sand and water, picnics and BBQs. And one of the best places for some of the most fabulous pictures of the Golden Gate Bridge. However, you will... More

Beautiful views of the bridge. This is a nude beach but only when you get down to the other end. When we went, there were only a few older hippie nudists. We took off our clothes and strolled the beach. Why not? Where else can you walk naked on a beach without getting arrested?

I was censored about the clothing optional, but we did not see any one naked. Everyone there was having a good time and would recommend it to everyone. By the way we my have not seen anyone naked because the day we visited it was cold.

I went there on a Tuesday afternoon. Not so many people, few naked men on the right side of the beach. But the Golden Gate Bridge is so nice to see from there. Definitely worth a visit.

Visited Baker Beach last week to kill a few hours before heading to the airport. Warm, sunny day with no wind. Great views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Dolphins swimming offshore and lots happening. A film was being shot. There were wedding parties getting their photos taken with the bridge as a backdrop. A small clothing optional area at the... More
