Why locals love it

Baker Beach is well known for offering scenic views of the Golden Gate Bridge and the ocean. On weekends it's usually packed with locals enjoying picnics, listening to music and sunbathing, with or without clothes! Indeed, the hidden north end of the beach is mostly frequented by nudists.

Why you should visit it

Baker Beach is a really gorgeous place to relax, hang out with friends or family and enjoy the Bay scenery. Harbor porpoises can often be seen frolicking on the tides. Moreover, the walk to get there takes you through Presidio Park and the Presidio neighborhood with its beautiful mansions.

Special tip

Be prepared for parking congestion on sunny weekends. If you can, avoid coming by car.
