Beautiful Beaches in SFO
This is one of the most interesting San Francisco beaches. There are dramatic cliffs, a rare dune habitat, and beautiful stones and shells to discover. The beach stretches for 4.6 miles, so you'll have plenty of space to roam. Be aware that during high tides the beach may not be accessible.

As the name implies, Fort Funston was once a military facility, and you'll still find the remains of gun emplacements designed for coastal defense, including Battery Davis in Sunset Trail located on the observation deck.
