It gets windy and cold so be prepared with the right clothing. The roads are run down in the area so watch out for potholes. Best reason to go is for the view of San Francisco.

This is not a place for serious hikers. If you enjoy a stroll beside the sea, the old bridge is the place to be. We generally spend a few hours here and then go to Viks chat for food. We love the old bridge on any day.

I was just there 1 day ago, it was windy but still some people are fishing there, its pretty to watch from there to the city, the pic I looked was from a year ago.yes, I recommend to visit this Marina, simply just to see the city from the other side.

This is a great way for accessible wildlife viewing, exercise, and sea air. There's a restaurant called Skates, a cafe' called the Seabreeze, and a sailing club. There's also a nature center. Unfortunately, the Berkeley Pier is closed due to structural problems. There's plenty more to see and do in the Berkeley Marina.

I love the beach, the park, nearby restaurants and aquatic attractions and mostly the fact that we can look across the SF Bay to see San Francisco fogged in, while we frolic in the sunshine

We stay at a near by hotel when we go to Berkeley. We relish our time at the Marina enjoying the slow pace, watching the birds and the boats, looking at the foliage. There is a small park for children and picnicking as well as an educational straw built house. Lovely. Great views of S.F.

A nice place to cycle around. Nice Adventure Playground, for kids to build with real tools (and nails!). Local sailing club where one can learn to sail or windsurf/kiteboard. Nice picnic areas to chill out at.

The Berkeley Marina is a must see when visiting the East Bay. The wild waters of the SF bay crash the rip rap creating a poetry of movement, sound, smell, and touch. The view of the Bay, SF, the bridges and Marin County is spectacular.

The marina offers great views but when the wind comes off the bay, bring a sweater. They also have a nice restaurant at the marina.
