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.

For professional photographers like me, this is one of the perfect spots to catch shots of the Golden Gate Bridge. If you're lucky, with the winds you'll have massive waves for great shots too.

The most interesting part is the way to reach the beach. We started the walk from GG bridge and half the way through you get to see some stunning views and special part was the sand ladder. Sand ladder starts from the top and goes down till the beach all the way straight. Stunning and must visit in my opinion.... More

A nice place to relax while you enjoy the Golden Gate Bridge view in the backdrop. Ideal place to stroll and reminisce on life or just soak in the sun. Also, please note: the northern side is a clothing-optional zone.

My daughter insisted too much to go to Baker Beach, I did not want to go actually as it is a beach at the end . However it is really wonderful especially sunset time. Sunset and the Golden Gate Bridge looks wonderfull together. Should go and enjoy with a drink :)

We were recommended this beach as a view point for Golden gate bridge. You will be on west of bridge so its a great location for photographing it during dusk/sunset time. And you have the beach too :)

Visiting the beach was fun with friends from the area as the golden gate bridge was clear in view, something they told me was not often common especially with recent rains, try to visit on a sunny day

Nice walk along the beach with a view of GG from an different angle. Expect to see nudist sunbathers as you walk towards the bridge.

I was surprised to find such an amazing beach in the city. It's in a beautiful area and once at the beach you have wonderful views of the bay bridge, Marin and the ocean. It can get blustery, so wrap up warm if walking along the beach, however it's well worth a stroll. There is a good amount of free... More

This place is a gem. One can get the best views of the Golden Gate Bridge from a simple walk down the beach.. And if you are lucky..like I was...you can spot dolphins enjoying their swim along the shorelines. Pose for photos or laze around the beach in those beachy ensembles. This place is a sure winner for all...Kids and... More
