Free, Popular with locals

This vast swath of sand borders the Great Highway on the western stretch of San Francisco. Watch local surfers catch gnarly (and freezing) waves, stroll the succulent-strewn bluffs, or just kick back for a picnic. Haul some firewood to the beach around sunset for a (legal) bonfire while watching the sun sink into the Pacific.
