This place is too popular, so get here early to secure a parking spot. You can park on the street in the neighborhood to save money, but, why bother if you are going to the beach. Nice sheltered beach is good for families, with restrooms,...More

If Stinson Beach were rated on looks alone, it would get a 5 out of 5. How could it not -- a sandy stretch of the Marin County coastline adjacent to the gorgeous Mt. Tamalpais State Park? On one of Stinson Beach's "official" websites, however,...More

After our envigorating hike, it only makes sense to - take off the boots and dip in the water. The beach was soooo packed. How can you just pass a naturely scene packed with fresh air and the water? The water was cold but refreshing.

A wonderful beach to take a long stroll and look for sand dollars and sea-glass. The weather is usually better there than any of the northern beaches.

I've been here several times with my family, and never spent much time at all in the town but have always enjoyed relaxing in one isolated spot or another on the beach.

Stopped in here twice in one week in late May/early June. I grew up in the Bay Area and had never visited here before. Nice big parking area, picnic spots, plenty of restrooms. Beach sand was nice and soft. Good sunny days when other beaches...More

It wasn't too crowded and it was a lovely, sunny, warm day. The sand is incredibly soft and the water wasn't too cold. Great beach to visit.
