Review of Limantour Beach

Limantour Beach
Reviewed 29 May 2014

The beach is clean and while it is windy, it is so much more protected compared to the other beaches. We were able to obtain a fire permit and had a bon fire at night which was absolutely wonderful!

Limantour Beach is a beautiful spot. Any walkers dream should be to walk along this beach and the trails that adjoin it. The day we went, it was 90 degrees which is highly unusual. Normally, it is at least 15 degrees or more cooler with potential overcast, fog, and wind. This is a spot for some quick wading provided the water is calm. Never turn your back on the ocean and always supervise your children here.

The instant I stepped onto this beach the wind swept me up! It was wonderful. The wind was strong and the sand was hot! It was quite chilly, way more chilly than inland, but laying on the sand warmed you up quickly. We came to spot a whale but unfortunately we didn't see any that day. There are lots of crab parts all over the beach, which make for good photo opportunities. Fabulous time!

We had a drive north of San Francisco to enjoy fresh oysters. On the way back we drove to Limantour beach, parked our car and walked for 10 minutes to the beach. The scenery is absolute fabulous! The wind, the smell and the sound from the ocean. In case you're in the area, make the drive there to enjoy & relax for some time.

We visited here this Sunday. The beach is about an hour from downtown San Rafael.

Clean, nice beach with restrooms.

Note to visitors:
There's no cell signal.
Bring a sweater because it's breezy on the coast.
Fogs/clouds roll in mid afternoon.
Expect it to be 10-15 degree F cooler than inland.
