Foursquare Tips

  • Make sure to visit the Muir Beach is breathtaking...bring a picnic lunch and enjoy your meal down the trail to the left, where the picnic tables are...its very romantic
  • Spotted Dolphins!
  • The drive from the Golden Gate Bridge to this beach might have been the most fun I've ever had behind the wheel... The drive isn't for the faint of heart, though.
  • See if its foggy or check out the waves - live webcam at
  • Be sure to visit at low tide and wear some sturdy beach shoes so you can walk out amongst the big rocks separating the two beaches to discover tidal pools of anemones, crabs and sea stars!
  • Toes in the water, ass in the sand.
  • Go and watch the sunset here!! Great beach for a fire!
  • Dont take the driftwood for your fire or else the lesbian security patrol will yell at you!
  • Arrive before 10am to beat the crowds. Take a hike before setting up on the beach for lunch.
  • Very dog friendly beach amazing view!
  • It was really cold when we visited, but still some people swim. Lovely place for weekend trip. Also it is very close to Muir Woods.
  • Love that it's a dog friendly beach!
  • Take the hike up to the overlook!
  • I prefer Muir to Stinson Beach. It's really nice and quiet here. Feels a bit more secluded in this small bay.
  • There's an amazing view from the peak that branches from the outlook point.
  • If you have a smile and a positive attitude it might improve the probabilities of finding parking. No wait, it will. Thank you. See you at the beach.
  • Small beach, and not too many visitors. Fires allowed in the rings!
  • One of my favorite beaches in the bay. Huge fire pits.
  • Small local beach that isn't "touristy". Climb over the rocks north to the smaller beach it feels like a secret/personal beach.
  • Great little beach. You can't help envying whoever lives right there
