    The views of the Golden Gate Bridge and the Marin Headlands from this beach are spectacular. These sands are also a recognized nudist spot, so you might catch a game of naked Frisbee on the north end.

    Great view of the bridge with lots of characters. Plus, there's a Burning Man effigy in commemoration of the first one.

    Although it might be quite crowded, it offers a nice panoramic view, which includes the Golden Gate Bridge. Come early in the summer if you need to park your car! Read more

    There's an even gayer, dirtier beach just beyond the rocks at the north end, closer to the bridge, accessible via the cliff above and the parking lot next to the old Presidio military bunker up there. Read more
