Ocean Beach is a great getaway for you and your family. It’s the most visited beach in all of San Francisco. This beach isn’t like any other beach with sunny weather and blue skies. The skies tend to be foggy just as often as it is sunny. The water rarely exceeds the temperature of 60 degrees Fahrenheit, and is in the 50-degree mark most of the year. If you’re a hardy swimmer, or an experienced surfer, this is the beach to test your skills.  Don’t let this weather threaten you; it’s still a cozy beach. This beach is a great place to watch surfers try these currents, and skimboarders are often found skimming on the smaller part of the water. It’s a great beach to be social, as it’s the most populated beach in all of San Francisco.

This beach is filled with activity. It is not only filled with surfers and skimboarders, but is also populated with kite flyers, kite carters zipping around in their wind-powered kite carts. Fisherman also love this venue, as it is an excellent environment for aquatic wildlife. Additionally, bonfires are  welcomed at this beach for up to 25 people. 

As you have made your walk along this beach, at the end along the south end, you’ll find an abundance of outdoor showers and plenty of restrooms. Dogs are allowed on the beach, as long as they are on a leash.  Free parking is also available and is a bonus to this gorgeous beach.

If you have worked up an appetite playing hard at this beach, on the cliffside, there is a wonderful restaurant named Cliff House. If you feel like taking a walk to work off those calories after you have a great dinner at the Cliff House, just north of it is the Sutro Baths, a what was once a thriving bathhouse, is now burnt ruins that are a sight to see.
