About
Mile-long Baker Beach lies at the foot of rugged serpentine cliffs west of the Golden Gate. Large waves, undertow and rip currents make the beach unsafe for swimming, but it provides panoramic views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Marin Headlands and Lands End. You can fish or check out the shorelife along the beach and rocky shoreline. Restrooms and picnic tables are nearby.

Beautiful beach
May 2021
Absolutely fantastic! The overall scenery is gorgeous! The beach is near the golden gate bridge so if you want to walk down to get some nice pictures you can. Parking was plentiful and free & overall people kept their distance. It was really nice!

Great beach; sunset on GG Bridge
Mar 2021 • Couples
This is a great beach to be at in the late afternoon to see the sun setting onto the Golden Gate bridge.
We just happened to find this beach by driving along the coast from the windmills in Golden Gate Park.
The parking lot here is not large and it appeared to be mostly local people.

A MUST See
Jan 2021 • Family
We packed a picnic lunch and a blanket . We got there around 12noon. We did find parking . We do have a handicap sign...there are about 50 + regular spaces . No cost to park.There are nice bathrooms and a park with several tables. Getting to the beach is very easy, no steps just a gradual paved path. Good IDEA to bring a coat, the weather can change very fast from cold and sunny to just COLD. Its absolutely stunning, the ocean & the golden gate bridge to the right. The beach was filled with families and a few people fishing too! we had a GREAT time

Stopped by here on my visit to the Bay area to take some pictures. Very nice and clean. Great view of the Golden Gate Bridge when the fog clears. Lots of parking available.

Fabulous, clean beach!
Aug 2020
This is one of my favorite beaches in the Bay Area. It is easy to get to and has fabulous views. I would recommend this beach to anyone, including families, for its safety and fun aspects (rocks to climb, etc).

Beaches are not open as they would normally be, you have to walk there and try to find parking elsewhere.

FYI Make sure people know that parking and probably bathrooms are closed. I drove by yesterday and the parking entrance is blocked off. People are having to park far away and walk there.

Sunrise at Baker Beach
Feb 2020
I went there to see the sunrise and it's awesome!! Go early in the morning (check on Google what time the sunrise is according to season) and you'll have an awesome view of the bridge with the sunrise in the background (this doesn't happen for the sunset)

Best views of the bridge
Feb 2020 • Couples
I gave it a 4 due to the “clothing optional” beach which doesn’t make it the family friendly type of beach for travelers. However, it was by far the best views of the bridge that I found during our trip. Highly recommend as long as you are prepared to see some nudity along the way.
