Aquatic Park Beach Review

An urban beach surrounded by Fort Mason, Ghirardelli Square, and Fisherman's Wharf, Aquatic Park is a ¼-mile-long strip of sand. The gentle waters near shore are shallow, safe for kids to swim or wade, and fairly clean. Locals—including the seemingly ubiquitous older-man-in-Speedo—come out for quick dips in the frigid water. Members of the Dolphin Club come every morning for a swim, and a large and raucous crowd braves the cold on New Year's Day. Amenities: restrooms; showers; restaurants. Best for: sunrise; sunset; swimming.
