Berkeley Marina is a great place to jog. Also good for views of San Francisco from the East looking West. Several restaurants along the Bay with nice views. Visit!

We've now stayed at the Berkeley Marina several times and it is consistently a good experience. Rooms with a water view are the best. The morning brunch is a don't miss.

The perimeter is well defined asphalt trail. The marina has about 7 pocket parks, and a free no-cast pier about 3/4 mile long with bathrooms and a weekend snack vender. There are no art statues and parking right along the water in view of San...More

Beautiful and easy to reach near the Doubletree Hotel in Berkeley. Hornblower boat is found here. Might leave from this location.

nice bayfront place to hang out and enjoy the fresh air and sun. Good for biking and walking. See some runners too.

We lucked out on good weather and walked around the marina, easy to forget you are in a major metropolitan area. The bay and the ocean beyond are timeless. Very relaxing.

What can I say? I love The Berkeley Marina! It serves many purposes. If you just need to get out for a brisk walk, head on over to Cezar Chavez park and walk around the paved trail. It also provides you with great views of...More

Sunrise would be over the hills to the East...not too dramatic.

Response from Barbara C | Reviewed this property |
Yes, but...not everywhere. There are walkways all around the marina. You will not be able to go down to look at boats that are on private docks. There will be a locked gate at the top. But if you are staying at the hotel, or... More
