Nice place to relax and observe the ocean. Birds are in the area and watching them soaring is amazing. If your lucky the hang glider guys will be flying and that is magical. Great way to spend s few relaxing hours.

This beach is great to enjoy a beautiful Californian sunset. It is very windy and a jacket is definitely required for a longer stay!

It's always a good day to visit Fort Funston, for beach activities, dog and people watching, whale watching, hang gliding, watching the crows ride the thermals, picnicking, sand dollars galore, sunsets, etc. Please leave places a bit nicer than you found them!! Cheers!
