Baker Beach San Francisco

Baker Beach San Francisco
Baker Beach is both a national and state beach and part of the Presidio. About a mile long this sandy beach is famous for it's view of the famed Golden State Beach. Baker beach is also a destination for nude sun bathing so don't be surprised to see people laying on the beach in a natural state. Swimming is dangerous due to the strong currents and cold water. Most people come for the view (Golden Gate Bridge) or the nude beach. The north end of Baker Beach is the established clothes optional area while the south end is primarily a day-use spot. Baker Beach is located just below the Presidio, on the ocean side of the Golden Gate Bridge. Take Lincoln Avenue to Bowley, where you will find a parking lot. On less-busy days, turn onto Gibson for closer parking.
