Ocean Beach

Ocean Beach Review

The city's largest beach stretches for more than 3 miles along the Great Highway south of the Cliff House, making it ideal for long walks and runs. This isn't the cleanest shore, but it's an easy-to-reach place to chill; spot sea lions sunning themselves atop Seal Rock at the north end of the beach; or watch daredevil surfers riding the rolling waves. Because of extremely dangerous currents, swimming isn't recommended. After sunset, bonfires form a string of lights along the beach in summer. (Fires are prohibited north of Fulton Street or south of Lincoln Way, the northern and southern edges of Golden Gate Park.) Restrooms are at the north end. Amenities: parking (no fee); lifeguards; toilets. Best for: solitude; sunset; walking.
