Beautiful waterfront setting with lots of natural paths and flora. Also has a bike path / walking path running through it and along the water for exercise in natural surroundings.

Not an exciting place but surprisingly quiet and isolated-feeling despite being so close to town. Breezy and open, you get plenty of space and nice views of Berkeley on one side and SF on the other.

My husband loves a great view but is not motivated to exercise. I, on the other hand love to walk. The solution is often a walk with a view. Our dog loves the seaside, so its a win, win, win for the 3 of us....More

Lots to do at the Berkeley Marina. My favorite one was sailing and you get to enjoy the bay from a very nice spot. I really loved this place.

Public park that was once a landfill, now has sparse vegetation in winter, a paved, wheelchair accessible trail all around the perimeter, hills and a dog park inside, and the rare burrowing owl has taken up a limited residence here. The area is restricted, but...More

It is a nice place, and has some potential to become a nice place in the future. But right now it feels a bit run-down and dirty.

We rode the Bayshore Trail which includes a tour of the marina. The day was perfect-sunny with moderate temperatures and little wind. Such a delight to smell salt air while watching the sun glisten off waves. If you are lucky, you will avoid construction and...More

Yes, but...not everywhere. There are walkways all around the marina. You will not be able to go down to look at boats that are on private docks. There will be a locked gate at the top. But if you are staying at the hotel, or... More
