The Basics

Because it is located across the city from the main tourist areas, Ocean Beach may not be on every tourist’s itinerary. However, it’s easy to squeeze into your sightseeing schedule with activities like a Golden Gate Park bike tour, GoCar tour, or coastal walking tour. Also, Ocean Beach is convenient to a selection of attractions in this part of the city, including the Legion of Honor museum, Lands End, Sutro Baths, and San Francisco Zoo.

San Francisco is such a beautiful city with a rich history. Not only does the tour take you to amazing sites, the GPS narrator highlights the history behind the places of interest. Great way to experience the city!

GoCar San Francisco Tour
My wife and I rented the GoCar for the day and found it was easy enough to maneuver and a fun way to see the city. The screen in the vehicle gave you turn-by-turn directions and told you a little about the major sights.

Guided tour of San Francisco and Alcatraz

Full-Day Guided Tour of San Francisco with Alcatraz
This looked like a fantastic tour to go on to make sure that you see all of San Fran as it is very spread out and easy to miss areas. Unfortunately we were not able to do the guided tour due to covid and places just starting to open back up not enough people signed up. The tour company were very good and got in touch in good time and offered us the alcatraz tickets and a refund or alcatraz and a hop on hop off bus tour. We accepted the hop on hop off bus tour. Thank you for keeping us updated and we appreciate the level of customer service We had an amazing time at Alcatraz it is so informative and has some stunning views. Well worth doing in San Fran. The hop on hop off tour allowed us to see parts of San Francisco that we definitely would not have seen or even known were there some lovely views. Thanks for a lovely day and the great customer service.

San Francisco ALL DAY SPECIAL GoCar Tour
It was a great experience. We had the full-day package. The check-in was smooth. Training video (@ 4-minutes) was clear. The guided tour (directional pad and voice directions and descriptions of different sites) was very good - it worked well, was informational and entertaining. The vehicle operated well and bringing in for a refill on gas went smoothly as well. The only surprise (for me) was the amount of pressure needed for the throttle and the loudness of the engine, but after 5-minutes, we were used to it, so no issues at all. We were able to see all of SF in a fun way.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • Bring layers, as the wind and fog can appear suddenly on the coast, even if it’s warm and sunny when you arrive.

  • Beach fires are permitted only in the fire rings and only from March through October.

  • Glass and alcohol are not allowed on the beach.

  • Surfing at Ocean Beach is not for beginners, as the waves are large and the current is very strong.

How to Get There

Starting at the Cliff House in the Outer Richmond neighborhood, Ocean Beach stretches south for 3.5 miles (5.6 kilometers). By car, drive all the way west on Fulton Street or Lincoln Way until you reach the coast. Free parking lots are available; if they are full, there is street parking in the adjacent neighborhoods. By light rail, the N-Judah line ends just across Great Highway from the beach.

When to Get There

Sunset offers a tranquil atmosphere and the best photo opportunities as you watch the sun sink into the Pacific. The sunniest months with warmest temperatures are typically September and October. In July and August, the beach is usually blanketed in fog. The beach parking lots close at night.

Golden Gate Park

San Francisco’s biggest city park is adjacent to Ocean Beach and just a few blocks from the Cliff House. It’s convenient to visit all of these sights on the same day, though there’s a lot of ground to cover. Stretching nearly half the width of the city, Golden Gate Park features world-class museums, a golf course, lakes, bike trails, gardens and playgrounds, sports fields, two windmills, and even a bison paddock.
