Baker Beach, a local favorite

Baker Beach has long been a favorite spot with locals, it is usually sheltered from the fog in the summer. It might be  sunny and ten degrees warmer than other parts of the city on Summer foggy days.  But still the beach is a little hard to find and a little bit cold for visitors used to a warm summer beach experience. Also, the nudists, mostly gay men, who have staked out the northern part of the beach for decades are a natural buffer to people not used to our San Francisco values and our freedom to be whomever we want.

So this beach for the most part remains a sanctuary to residents of the city
and a welcome respite from the fog and hordes of tourist. But parking can be tough.
