It’s easy by car, driving towards Sausalito, to turn-off at Vista Point after crossing the bridge. It’s a spacious pullout with angle parking and washroom facilities with views over the water towards the SF cityscape and Alcatraz. One can look down the hill to see a lighthouse near the bridge abutment, but I didn’t see any signs for accessing a path to it from the parking lot. Birdwatchers using binoculars might be able to see migrating eagles in October on the Marin Hills opposite the viewpoint stop.

Although the view across the water was interesting, I was more fascinated with the view of the bridge traffic. The reddish orange colored bridge has 3 lanes of traffic in each direction that were flowing smoothly at 9:30am on a Saturday. Sidewalks were available on both sides of the bridge, and, interestingly, were occupied by many walkers probably just wanting the experience of walking across the bridge. There is nothing for walkers to see, visit or do on the Sausalito side unlike on the SF side of the bridge. Although the bridge deck looks straight from afar, from this position, one can see an incline. For us, Vista Point was a 20 minute photo-stop.

We pulled off at the Vista Point after crossing the Golden Gate Bridge. It was crowded but parking was available. Unfortunately. fog obstructed the view. On a clear day, it would have been great.

Super location to view the iconic Golden Gate Bridge.

This is a must for all visiting the bay area.

Hopefully no or limited fog to enhance the scenic view.

1st exit right off the 101 Freeway after crossing the Golden Gate Bridge, this spot offers great views of the bridge, San Francisco Bay and city skyline. However, Battery Spencer on the other side of the highway offers an even better view.

There are great views available here and we arrived via the hop on hop off bus service so spent about half an hour at the location. There are toilets available but it could do with a coffee/gift shop which I am sure would do well .

Stunning location

Great spot to get to for fantastic views and pictures of the Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco. Great on a clear day -- can get a bit of fog in morning or on rainy days.

Vista Point East, accessed from coming over the bridge from San Francisco, a quick exit so keep your eyes open, which is always a good idea when driving anywhere. View is wonderful, had a clear sunny day, and was very impressive and wonderful place to be and enjoy.

Awesome views of Golden Gate Bridge from Vista Point at North side of the bridge in Sausalito. Ample car parking space there with easy in and out from the Vista Point makes the visit comfortable. Street food hawkers were there with many visitors.

We were leaving from Cavallo Point and took this route just to go around one last time, oh boy, this was possibly the best thing we could have done! The views about 1 hour prior Sunset are remarkable. I will say its the BEst View Point EVER!
