Nice view of the bay and San Francisco. Two (expensive) restaurants both with huge windows all around - to get great views of the bay while you eat. Might be a great location for a graduation lunch. Other than that, not much to see or...More

We lucked out on good weather and walked around the marina, easy to forget you are in a major metropolitan area. The bay and the ocean beyond are timeless. Very relaxing.

What can I say? I love The Berkeley Marina! It serves many purposes. If you just need to get out for a brisk walk, head on over to Cezar Chavez park and walk around the paved trail. It also provides you with great views of...More

Short walks along the windy shoreline with pretty views across the Bay to San Francisco. A great place for quiet solitude or to fly a kite.

Strolla long the marina, walk the pier, look out across the bay to San Francisco, feel the breeze, daydream, fantasize, and enjoy the enjoyable.

The Cal Sailing club is one of the best deals in the Bay Area. Only about $100 for 3 months, unlimited rentals and lessons, all included in the price. Great views of the bay, adventurous sailing. Can't go wrong.

I love the Berkeley Marina. I lived in San Fran for 20 years and would go to the water locations on the bay down there. But there were always so many people I found it off putting. Since moving to the East Bay I love...More

It's a fun walk and seems like it could take you all the way to San Francisco. You might encounter some odd smells like a combination of sea weed and moldy cheese, but hey it's Berkeley.

Sunrise would be over the hills to the East...not too dramatic.

Yes, but...not everywhere. There are walkways all around the marina. You will not be able to go down to look at boats that are on private docks. There will be a locked gate at the top. But if you are staying at the hotel, or... More
