Baker Beach, San Francisco

(550+ reviews on the web)
Beach
While it remains too dangerous for swimming, Baker Beach is one of the best spots in the city to take in views of San Francisco's iconic bridge. This public beach stretches along the Pacific just northwest of the city, which makes it easily accessible by various modes of transportation. Keep in mind that the northernmost section of the beach tends to attract nudists. Arrange your visit to Baker Beach and discover more family-friendly attractions in San Francisco using our San Francisco trip itinerary maker.
