Before I go any further, I must clarify one thing: I am rating Baker Beach as a nude beach only.

If you're female and are going to Baker Beach for the nude experience, I strongly recommend that you wait until one of the very few really hot days of the year (by SF standards, that's about 90 degrees Fahrenheit). On those days, you will get larger crowds, which means more nudists and a M/F ratio that maybe approaches 70M/30F. All other times, when the beach weather is foggy and cold, the "crowds" are sparse, the M/F ratio varies from 80/20 to 95/5, and you can count on there being lots of clothed men ready to gawk at any woman who removes her clothes.

Male nudists will have no problems, though be prepared for the M/F imbalance. However, I would advise any woman going to Baker to do so in a swimsuit, and decide once you're there how much you will expose. My wife, who enjoys the naturist experience as much as I, now goes to Baker mostly to accompany me, and leaves her bathing suit on at all times.

There are several access points on Lincoln Blvd for walking to Baker Beach. The Sand Ladder was really steep, and as I got closer to the beach, the sand started giving out (although the definite steps are thin wooden blocks), so I used the Coastal Trail (closer to the city) to get there instead as it was much smoother slope. From the beach, there are beautiful views all around: the city, the ocean/shoreline, and the Golden Gate Bridge. It was so peaceful just standing there watching the waves hit the beach. There weren't too many people, which was nice. I would definitely recommend sunscreen for going to the beach or spending any extended time in the Presidio with all the reflective water nearby.
