Mile-long Baker Beach lies at the foot of rugged serpentine cliffs west of the Golden Gate. Large waves, undertow and rip currents make the beach unsafe for swimming, but it provides panoramic views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Marin Headlands and Lands End. You can fish or check out the shorelife along the beach and rocky shoreline. Restrooms and picnic tables are nearby.

Great views of the Golden Gate Bridge from Baker's Field. Peaceful too! We recently visited on the last leg of a day tour of Muir Woods and the wine country.

This is one of the classic spots to take a picture of the Golden Gate Bridge on the southside. You cant get as close as on the north side, but you do get a beach shot in your picture.

You can get a great view of Golden Gate Bridge from here – especially if you walk over to the rocks. Be aware of lots of nudists close to the rocks when you're taking photos/videos or bringing kids! The beach itself is nice and there...More
