Fun little detour off of Bay Bridge

Located between San Francisco and Oakland and accessible from Bay Bridge, Treasure Island provides great vantage points to view the Bay from various angles.

TI is not what it once was when operated by the Navy. Parts of it are now owned by SF, mostly low income housing toward the rear and some other old buildings. The rest is gated off, the dilapidating barracks area. If you want view of the City for a backdrop then this place is a 5. Not much else... More

Great views of the city at night and the bay bridge lit up from treasure island. It also gives you and excuse to cross the very impressive bay bridge if coming from San Francisco.

Being a photographer, the best views to capture and enjoy the SF skyline and the Bay Bridge is during the evening, When the sun shines directly in front of you about to set, the view of the city is magnificent. A sweater or jacket is ideal because it will always be very cold here. Parking is not a problem and... More

JUST seeing it, was reeling and brought me to tears, such a beautiful quite space, just nestled off the highway bridge areas, was ENOUGH for, me. It reminded me, of some of what I have gone through to begin the journeys I am on currently.

We decided to visit Treasure Island based on a couple of shows we saw on public television. The views of San Francisco and the Bay are spectacular; however, I did not see any place where you could sit and enjoy the atmosphere. There were lots of empty parking lots full of port holes. We could not find a visitors center... More

It's been said already but a quick drive around the island is well worth the view. The view of San Francisco is superb if you can catch it on a fog less night. Best time for no fog is October -Feb. Or visit during the day.

Good old Treasure Island just lies there quietly in the Bay having seen it all - from being an active ship / Navy base back when to a site for large concerts & events today. It's a peaceful spot to stop in off the Bay Bridge and get the best waterfront views of San Francisco. Fun aside. ...

We drove around the island to explore and its a little sad to see how run down it is. But the view back across the bay is amazing and worth the stop!
