Stinson Beach Travel Guide: 2 reviews and 23 photos

The beach heals all that stresses you...

This is a pretty typical scene on a summer day in August. This beach is just a fraction of the sand that stretches to the north. Stinson beach has a variety of monthly rental beach houses and attracts all kinds of locals from the area as well as SF.

THe drive from SF

This has to be one of the all time most scenic drives to a beach from a major city. It takes about an hour on highway 1 just past Sausalito. You will see fog in the beginning and brilliant sunshine when you arrive.

Sand Dollar

The Sand Dollar is the best restaurant on the strip in Stinson. On a nice sunny day it is not suprising to find a 3 piece jazz band playing while you enjoy the food. The sun is bright as well as the people.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:A very relaxing experiecne
  • Cons:traffic thru SB can be frustrating on summer weekends around 12-4pm
  • In a nutshell:Relaxing away from SF
