“Beautiful and relaxing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

You will get awesome views of golden gate bridge here, nice scenery all round, and be sure to do some of the trails too, most of them are easy. Do note there's a timing to visit the lighthouse, so don't arrive too late! (Like I did unfortunately).

“A must see!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

This place should be on everyone's list while in SF, so beautiful...a view to die for. Just drive 101 N, cross the GG bridge and take Alexander exit. Left on Sausalito and slight right on GGRA/Conzulman Dr. You'll definitely love it up there. If you want more adventure continue driving to a one way steep and winding road heading to Point Bonita lighthouse. The view is even better. Parking is limited, so get there early. Walk 1/2 mile along a coastal cliff to a tunnel that leads to a narrow path along cliffside to reach the bridge that connects the lighthouse. It is open during Sat,Sun and Mon - 12:30 to 3:30 only.

We had the best photos of our trip while stopping here. So glad one of our local friends encouraged us to include this in our visit.

“Spectacular Views of Golden Gate Bridge and SF”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

Watch the sailboats under the Golden Gate Bridge and see a unique, one of a kind view of San Francisco and the Pacific Ocean. Best photo opportunity in the Bay Area. Amazing sunset vistas.

“What a view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

The view of the bay from here is spectacular! You can see forever unless the fog is in, but that in its self is also a beautiful site.
