Baker Beach in San Francisco is located on the northwest side of San Francisco, off of Lincoln Boulevard, within the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy area of the Presidio. Parking is free, and there are three available lots. The often cloudy beach makes up for the weather with its stunning views of the Golden Gate Bridge.
The sand at Baker Beach in San Francisco seems softer than at other beaches, and there are grassy areas for playing games, as well as shaded tree-areas further back from the beach to shelter you if you need a break from the sun.
