Directions: Take the 29 Sunset bus or go north on 25th Avenue to Lincoln Boulevard. Turn right and take the second left onto Bowley Street. Follow Bowley to Gibson Road, turn right, and follow Gibson to the east parking lot. Head right on the beach to the nude area, which starts at the brown and yellow "Hazardous surf, undertow, swim at your own risk" sign. Some motorcycles in the lot have been vandalized, possibly by car owners angered by bikers parking in car spaces; to avoid trouble, motorcyclists should park in the motorcycle area near the cyclone fence.

 

LAND'S END BEACH, SAN FRANCISCO

Land's End is just the beginning: it's not just the ground that seems to "disappear" into the sunset at this little slice of paradise off Geary Boulevard. So do your clothes, if you want to be magically transported to another dimension, away from the cares of everyday constraints. Shorts, swimsuit, even work clothes during a quick lunch break — they all can be removed at this delightful cove, which features a mix of sand and rocks plus some of San Francisco's best views. Better still, only a handful of people are usually present. Bring a windbreak for protection in case the weather changes.

Directions: Follow Geary Boulevard to the end, then park in the dirt lot up the road from the Cliff House. Take the trail at the far end of the lot. About 100 yards past a bench and some trash cans, the path narrows and bends, then rises and falls, eventually becoming the width of a road. Don't take the road to the right, which leads to a golf course. Just past another bench, as the trail turns right, go left toward a group of dead trees where you will see a stairway and a "Dogs must be leashed" sign. Descend and head left to another stairway, which leads to a 100-foot walk to the cove. Or, instead, take the service road below the El Camino del Mar parking lot 1/4 mile until you reach a bench, then follow the trail there.

GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE BEACH, SAN FRANCISCO

Don't come to Golden Gate Bridge Beach, also called Nasty Boy Beach, if you want privacy: dozens to hundreds of visitors show up on the hottest days at the site that some have likened to a "gay meat market." Along with the guys, a smattering of women, straight couples, children and fishermen are spread out on the three adjoining rocky coves that make up the beach, whose stunning views of the Bridge will make you feel like you're the star of your own postcard. "It's really nice to walk in the water," says a woman. "In low tide, you can sometimes go out 150 feet."

Directions: Directions: from the toll booth area of Highway 101/1, take Lincoln Boulevard west about a half mile to Langdon Court. Turn right (west) on Langdon and look for space in the parking lots, across Lincoln from Fort Winfield Scott. Park and then take the new, improved beach trail, starting just west of the end of Langdon, down its more than 200 steps to Golden Gate Bridge Beach, also known as Marshall's Beach.

 

FORT FUNSTON BEACH, SAN FRANCISCO

If you try to be naked here on weekends, you'll be barking up the wrong tree. The main creatures who go nude at Fort Funston, south of Ocean Beach, are dogs, but that hasn't stopped a small band of stark naked sunbathers from hiding away in some sand dunes when rangers aren't in the area. Authorities usually issue several citations a year here. But if you don't make a fuss and visit on a weekday, you probably won't be busted. If anyone complains, put on your beach gear right away. Two more fun activities at "Fort Fun": watching hang-gliders take off from the cliffs and checking out a seemingly endless passing parade of people and their pets.

Comments

As a long time resident of Muir Beach I am in no way opposed to having nude sunbathers on the beach. As an adult, I am also not opposed to men walking around with hardware dangling from their units. What I am opposed to is lewd conduct on the beach that may offend any of my neighbors and their children.

I have seen just about everything you could imagine, including men jerking off and walking around the beach with hard-ons. This to me is not what I would call sunbathing.

The only thing a sunbather has to remember when coming to Muir Beach, is that, if they are cited for indecent behavior, its very likely that they could be tagged as a sex offender. This is a label that will be difficult to remove. So, you corporate types, yes the Google, Sun Microsystem and BofA worker this won't in anyway enhance your career. Try getting a job at the NSA when you have to explain that you were cited 8 years ago for walking around a beach with a set of rubber bands around your nuts.

Bathers beware!

The other day I saw two men nude on Market and 4th. They are often seen walking around the Castro. They were holding some sign to elect someone for something.

I honestly don't know what they are thinking. If it was really just about being nude they wouldn't have been wearing cock rings with their penises semi-erect. Also, if a person is going to be naked.... go to the gym!!!

The bad news is what ever statement they are trying to make is not the one that is coming through.

It's perfectly natural for people to walk around in the nude all over the world.But westerner's are so blasted uptight and twisted about it. All the gawking by the men on women and men on men.I thought the purpose was to enjoy the water and sun.If you want to have a contest of who has wins whatever award for this category go have a contest on the internet/cable for that.
Stop trying to make these beaches all about your selfish ego driven pleasure center's.
You want all this freedom but will not take any responsibility. The way we treat ourselves,each other and the Planet. It's really time to get real people. sorry. Just telling you how it looks from angle.
I am all for fun. someone has to clean up the house after the party.

peace to all-

Harold, what are you saying? Nudity is ok with you, but not lewdity?

Posted by johny why on Sep. 18, 2010 @ 7:28 pm

That is not right at all.. Walking naked on Market St? Have a little respect to your self - naked person!!

Posted by Guest on Aug. 23, 2010 @ 9:56 pm

the naked body is the most natural and beautiful thing in the world (ok, maybe not all bodies). be proud, naturists, be proud! share your bare with the malls of humanity and the halls of justice!

don't let Christian shame besmirch your good name.

but i agree that lewdity should be discreet. i don't want to see other people's sexual activities in public. that is disrespectful.

Why be opposed of a man's hard on. Some men like myself have a big dick. My dick looks like I am hard and sometimes I am.That may be lewd to some but impressive to others. If a hard on is caught by someone being stroked then that is one thing but if my dick is just hard and I am mining my business then that is another. That is no difference than some women with big butts and some with their butt hole exposed because their tiny butts. who can judge why some people body is different.
