It’s a wonderful place for someone to come to enjoy if they never been to the beach it’s wonderful and it’s very quiet you can park at the park and then take your shoes off and go straight to the water it’s wonderful but check the weather sometimes the weather can be different

A Rare Beach
Jun 2021
Three are not many ocean beaches around the Bay Area, but this is probably the prettiest. The water is usually too cold for swimming but on a sunny day this place is jammed. And on a foggy day, it's just gorgeous.

Large, beautiful beach
Jun 2021
The beach is large, wide and beautiful. Plenty of space to find a place to sit. Several restroom/shower facilities and places to purchase food nearby, as well as a park/picnic area between the parking lot and the beach. The main downsides are that of all the times we've been there, maybe only once it wasn't really windy - which is actually typical for CA beaches in the summer. Also, as usual, along the NorCA coast, the water is quite cold!

Beautiful Beach!
Apr 2021 • Solo
Whether you're passing through or there for the day, Stinson Beach is a beautiful beach, a quaint little town, and a great place to spend some time. Make sure you visit the independent bookstore in town, Stinson Beach Books.

Great place for a walk
Feb 2021
We stopped here and took a very nice walk. The sand was hard and easy to walk on. We walked about 2 miles. We found sand dollars and other shells.

Beautiful Pacific Ocean Beach
Dec 2020 • Solo
This is a beautiful Pacific Ocean Beach. It's popular for surfers and for sunbathers, although the water is always freezing.

It's also a great jumping-off point for some of the hiking trails on Mount tamalpais.

The city is not set up for parking.

A Truly Beautiful Beach
Oct 2020
This beach is a gem and is always lovely anytime of year. Beware there is often fog here and it can be quite cold and only brave take a dip in the cold water. The beach and setting are terrific.

Parking is an issue
Aug 2020
Huge beach but no parking. There are three lots and all of them full. We waited in a car line for 45 min to get to the town only to find out all the lots were full. Small town to no alternatives for parking.

Rough Surf Cliffs Above

Such a great beach to spend time at, walking, resting or swimming. Beautiful views of the coastline. Parking is free and there are public restrooms as you approach the beach.
