Treasure island is a fun little escape for locals and vistors alike. There are specatular views of the Bay area cities and the new Bay bridge. The big surprise is that there are several very good wineries on the island. This is a great place for wine tasting, walking, romantic dates, photo ops and just enjoying the sites. This is a don't miss stop for anyone looking to escape the crowds of the S.F. pier!

We went in the evening when it was around 6.30PM and it was already dark. The SF downtown, the bay bridge were illuminating. The Golden gate wasn't very obviously visible though. There is nothing else here apart from an awesome view.

We were crossing the Bay Bridge and pull off on a whim. We were lucky enough to be there right at sunset and got some amazing pictures.

Although we live in Canada, we love to visit San Francisco. As this has been about our fifth visit to this wonderful city, we decided we should drive out to Treasure Island to check it out. I figured if there was nothing else that the view would be worth the drive and I was not disappointed. It is a paradise for pictures of San Francisco skyline, the Bay bridge, (you can get the new part and the original part from either side of the island) and on a clear day I am sure Alcatraz would really stick out. I got a photo of it off in the distance on an overcast day with just an older iPhone so I can't imagine what a real camera would pick up. Of course the ocean is right there beating up against the rocks. We toured the whole island, just drove around looking at what was there and where they plan on building new things. It was an afternoon well spent1

When you first drive on to the island the views to the left of SF are absolutely breathtaking - especially on a clear day. But even on a somewhat foggy day they are lovely. On the right side of the road there is a large parking lot. From there you have a great view of the new part of the Bay Bridge. There is also a wonderful cafe which makes great BLT sandwiches and, of course many other lunch type items - including salad.
We used to take this ride just for a fun outing and would watch the progress being made on the bridge as it was being built.
Great place to take visitors who want good pix of SF.
