Baker Beach

Baker Beach Review

With its gorgeous views of the Golden Gate Bridge and the Marin Headlands, Baker Beach is a local favorite and an established nudist spot. (Never seen nude Frisbee? This is the place.) The pounding surf and strong currents make swimming a dangerous prospect, but the mile-long shoreline is ideal for fishing, building sand castles, or watching sea lions at play. On warm days the entire beach is packed with bodies—including those nudists, who hang out at the north end. Picnic tables, grills, restrooms, and drinking water are available. Rangers give tours of the 95,000-pound cannon at Battery Chamberlin, overlooking the beach, on the first weekend of every month. Amenities: parking (no fee); toilets. Best for: nudists; sunset; walking.
