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

Baker Beach offers great views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Marin headlands, and easy access to the Presidio/Golden Gate attraction center via a short hike. It's a little bit difficult to get to without a car: take the 28 bus to 25th Avenue and walk about a mile to the beach. If it's a warm day make sure to bring... More

Ever looked at a Golden Gate Bridge postcard and wonder where the gorgeous beach shots with the bridge is the background were shot? It's right here. This is a fabulous place to soak up the peace and serenity with a gorgeous view. It's a bit tricky to figure out where to park and access the beach (if you are unfamiliar... More

Baker Beach is a favorite destination for locals who want to sit in the sun (when it's out), or stroll the beach, or have a picnic, or frolic about in the all-together to work on their full-body tan.

A beach with a view. We loved it. You are near the Golden Gate Bridge and it was a clean beach. We would go again.

This was a very quiet, uncrowded beach when we visited last May. Awesome view of the Golden Gate- one of the best pictures we took of the bridge was from Baker Beach. Beautiful spot to sit and soak in the view! Enjoy!

Nice rocks on either edge. Lots of folks walking dogs. Went when it was raining so didn't stay long. Nice surf due to the storm!
