When I visited San Francisco for the 2nd time, I'd thought I'd seen it all. Great vintage shops, beautiful parks and great food but this place re introduced me to California. The journey to Bolinas Beach was just as much apart of the adventure then the arrival. Once over the Golden Gate Bridge and through miles of beautiful curvy roads through a grand forrest, the beautiful landscape of Norther California that looked like it was taken right out of a postcard was amazing. According to my friend, a local who lives in SF, this beach is kept under the radar to avoid too many tourist so getting a map and sticking to it is best due to lack of signage. My friend joked that it's "the beach off the edge of Fern Gully" and that the best way I could put it. -- A definite must see for a calming hike and moment by the shore if ever in SF.
