  • Get here early for sublime birding in the dawn hours, grab an egg sandwich from Louies and hike down to the ruins. Warm up with a cappuccino when the cafe opens at 9 am.
  • Follow the signs to Mile Rock beach. When you've almost reached bottom of stairs (~200 steps!), veer to the right up a hill to a plateau with mini-labyrinth, incredible view of the Golden Gate.
  • Some of the best hiking in the city. Be sure to bring a jacket, the wind can be heavy.
  • Romantic place for a picnic, walk, and sunset.
  • A part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. A romantic and scenic spot to capture the Golden Gate Bridge and watch the bay and ocean come together.
  • Souvenirs and coffee are amazing!
  • :)
  • Read about the hotel and bath ruins. Amazing.
  • Bring a jacket. It's COLD!

  • We loved this perspective of golden gate with the beautiful nature so close to the city. We will definitely be back.
  • We were here in 70 weather no wind! Beautiful! Whales were spouting near but hard to get a pic with this phone.

  • Gorgeous view
  • Beautiful Pacific Ocean views, especially at dawn and dusk.
