“Bay Area in the Buff”
Baker Beach is a public beach on the peninsula of San Fransisco, California, U.S. The beach lies on the shore of the Pacific to the northwest of the city. It is roughly a half mile (800 m) long, beginning just south of Golden Gate Point (where the Golden Gate Bridge connects with the peninsula), extending southward toward the Seacliff peninsula, the Palace of the Legion of Honor and the Sutro Baths. The northern section of Baker Beach is "frequented by clothing-optional sunbathers". As such it is considered a nude beach.
Most of the travel books we read claim this as the best beach in the city. It is windy. Constantly. And it's cold. Bring a jacket, hat, and gloves if you plan on watching the sunset at the beach (which you want to do). The sun sets for the classic "post card shot" of the Golden Gate Bridge.
