Beautiful Beach!
Apr 2021 • Solo
Whether you're passing through or there for the day, Stinson Beach is a beautiful beach, a quaint little town, and a great place to spend some time. Make sure you visit the independent bookstore in town, Stinson Beach Books.

Great place for a walk
Feb 2021
We stopped here and took a very nice walk. The sand was hard and easy to walk on. We walked about 2 miles. We found sand dollars and other shells.

Beautiful Pacific Ocean Beach
Dec 2020 • Solo
This is a beautiful Pacific Ocean Beach. It's popular for surfers and for sunbathers, although the water is always freezing.

It's also a great jumping-off point for some of the hiking trails on Mount tamalpais.

The city is not set up for parking.

A Truly Beautiful Beach
Oct 2020
This beach is a gem and is always lovely anytime of year. Beware there is often fog here and it can be quite cold and only brave take a dip in the cold water. The beach and setting are terrific.

Parking is an issue
Aug 2020
Huge beach but no parking. There are three lots and all of them full. We waited in a car line for 45 min to get to the town only to find out all the lots were full. Small town to no alternatives for parking.

Rough Surf Cliffs Above

Such a great beach to spend time at, walking, resting or swimming. Beautiful views of the coastline. Parking is free and there are public restrooms as you approach the beach.

Great for Walking
Jun 2020
You can walk all the way to the inlet separating Stinson Beach from Bolinas, or 2.5 miles one-way. The sand is hard packed down by the water, making walking easy.

Marin squared
Jan 2020
This is the beach I grew up with, a short ride over Mt Tam, through Muir woods and voila! the ocean is revealed. the surf is OK; a good place to learn to ride a board.

So relaxing
Mar 2019 • Couples
How can this be so close to the cities? Quiet and laid back. So many sand dollars to collect along the beach. Beautiful waters. Kind people. A nap on the beach with crashing waves tops it off.
