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.

It is a little cove, with a nice sandy beach, picnic tables and a gorgeous view of the golden gate. I have seen a lot of family photos taken on this beach. We always stop here on our tour to snap a few photos of a different bridge perspective. It is packed on sunny weekends and the outhouses are usually... More

A stop on our bike tour of San Francisco's waterfront. We had a small picnic lunch and watched the dogs cavort on an otherwise wide and empty beach. It was lovely to see the ocean and to find such a nice quiet spot.

Truly one of the most amazing views in the bay area. If your looking to hike this place has it. If you're just going for the view, you may want to take Uber/Lyft/Taxi to the beach and then back up to the bridge. Spectacular views of the bridge and beautiful surrounding landscape.

Yes, there are views of the GG Bridge from the Marin headlands but if you want to see it from different angles Bakers Beach is a good place to go. I suggest a weekday as then... More

Baker Beach stretches for a mile I like the sandy beach. There are stunning views of both the Golden Gate Bridge as well as the Marin Headlands. There is a good size parking area.

A lovely beach with a beautiful view of the Golden Gate Bridge. My niece enjoyed running about and skimming stones into the calm water.

Love Baker Beach!!! Directly on the Pacific with parking. Great place to pack a picnic and people watch. Numerous dog walkers. Waves are crashing with a strong surf and very cold water. Beautiful place for pictures of the Golden Gate bridge. You may encounter a few nude sunbathers up close to the cliffs/far end (no biggie). I've picked up a... More
