“a lovely stroll”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

The golden gate promenade is a stretch of dirt path, shrubbery and beach from Fisherman's Wharf to Fort Point at the Golden Gate Bridge. It takes you all the way along the bay to the bridge. The long sandy beach is popular with windsurfers and lots of kite flyers too. From the beach there's a stunning view of the Golden Gate Bridge. Dogs are allowed on the beach too, so you can take your pooch along for the stroll. Great photo opportunities. You could walk the promenade, or rent a bike and go for a ride. A really lovely walk

“Get out and under.”
Reviewed December 23, 2012

We covered this area on Segways, a very cool comfortable easy way to see the area, without expending much energy. Regardless, we'll come back and walk it. This is a glorious walk along paths, beach, and green space right up to the bridge. We saw surfers getting ready to do what? Skim the tiny little beach break and ride the 1 m back to land. Their skill was fun to see, as the fact the water is what 14deg all year round, amazed us. It is quiet away from the traffic, and gives a great view of the bridge from underneath.

“Must do if you are in San Francisco!”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

I think the best option is to rent a bike and take a ride starting from Fisherman's Warthf all the way to the Golden Gate Bridge. The view is astonishing and breathtaking.
