The Best Picnic Spot in the Bay Area
Updated: Nov 3, 2020
At Baker Beach you will find everything for a perfect picnic. The sand, the waves, mountain views, Golden Gate Bridge with its amazing history in the air. All you need is a blanket, some food (and wine) and you will be set for an amazing evening!
Not many people know that Baker Beach is the birthplace of the Burning Man Festival. In fact, the very first Burning Man Festival took place here in 1986!
Since then, Baker Beach has seen many more events, parties, picnics, engagements and breakups. Locals love this beach for a reason: the amazing views, especially at sunset when the Golden Gate Bridge glows and the city vibes.
The only thing to remember at Baker Beach: there is no swimming here, supposedly sharks like this beach too!
