“Stop by if you have an hour or two”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

Good place to walk - spectacular views of SF, people flying kites, two good on-the-water restaurants, a yacht harbor, a fishing pier, a playground if you go to the left at the fork as you drive up there, some wildlife (birds, ground squirrels) if you go to the right.

Some things to keep in mind - it's very windy, so take a jacket. It's very sunny, no shade anywhere, so take a hat/sunglasses. It's not in any way swimmable.

“Close to all Berkeley eateries”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

A park next to the marina is great for walking with views of the bay. There are restaurants near the marina or take University Ave. to many great Berkeley eateries. Hornblower ferries provide trips on the bay from in back of the Doubletree Hotel. Sailing charters are available.
