For those looking for a more secluded beach going experience in San Francisco, look no further than Marshall's Beach. Located down the bluffs from the Batteries to Bluffs Trail along the western shoreline of the park, this beach allows visitors to forget their in a city and reconnect with nature and the ocean. Marshall's Beach also allows those visitors looking to get a full body tan to take the clothing optional route and bare it all, so visitor's not wishing to stumble across nude sunbathers should avoid this beach and instead head to the more populated Baker Beach. On the subject of clothing, or lack thereof, most people will need to dress in layers most of the time since this beach can get cold. Visitors who make the hike in and make accommodations for the cold weather will be rewarded with some of the best views of the Golden Gate. Bring the camera, since this beach and the surrounding area is incredibly photogenic.
