Explore Ocean Beach at nearly any location along the Great Highway to find a wide stretch of coastline that extends out to the horizon and beyond. During certain times, immense waves crash along the shore, making this a great place to spot surfers. On a stormy day, scour the shore for sand-dollars and seashells.
For a beach with an unforgettable city view, check out any of the beaches on the coast below the Golden Gate Bridge – China Beach, Baker Beach, or Marshall Beach, all with equally stunning views. From the Marin Headland’s side, visit Kirby Cove’s beach, accessible after a short hike from the headlands down to sea level, for seclusion and city beach views.
