One of the city’s most beautiful beaches, Baker gives you that two-for-one view of where the Pacific Ocean meets the Golden Gate Bridge and the bay and headlands beyond. On the beach, you’ll find sand dune ecosystems typical of this area and some unique wildflowers that can tolerate the shifting conditions. A walk from one end to the other is a must. An easy way to reach the beach from downtown is to take the PresidiGo, a free shuttle that goes through the Presidio and stops at Baker Beach.
On a sunny day, this beach is a nice place to have a picnic while having beautiful views of Golden Gate Bridge

Enjoy the Academy of Sciences, de Young Museum, Japanese Tea Garden, Stow Lake, the Conservatory of Flowers (great night time light shows in the summer and winter) and many, many other features of the park.”
