Overview
More
Mile-long Baker Beach lies at the foot of rugged serpentine cliffs west of the Golden Gate. Large waves, undertow and rip currents make the beach unsafe for swimming, but it provides panoramic views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Marin Headlands and Lands End. You can fish or check out the shorelife along the beach and rocky shoreline. Restrooms and picnic tables are nearby.

This is arguably one of the best places to take your iconic Golden Gate Bridge Photo. Quite easy to access, escape the marina area crowds here.

This beach is a must see when visiting San Francisco! The sound of the waves and the view of the golden gate bridge are definitely worth while! Just remember to bring a blanket as it can be quite windy and chilly.

Great spot but be advised there is nude bathing there. Plenty of parking and worth the visit. Great spot to take pictures of Golden Gate Bridge.

This is a great spot for a bit of bridge spotting. There were car spots so wasn't too hard to access. A nice beachfront to enjoy as well.

We went to Baker Beach with our bicycles. The view of the bridge from here is so fantastic, unfortunately the beach is very, VERY dirty which is quite a shame.

I do not know 100%, but most Cities have ordinances which do NOT allow overnight camping unless in designated campgrounds, with facilities, which this is not- It's just a parking lot to access the trails
