If possible, pick a clear day and go the Berkeley Marina. It is easily accessible by the local bus system. You will not be disappointed. You will be directly across from the Golden Gate Bridge, one of the world's mostlegant human created structures. To its...More

This is a wonderful place to walk and get some exercise. Great view of the Bay, Golden Gate Bridge and sailboats. There are a few places to nosh, but the main feature is a great walk.

We sail with the OCSC club, which keeps their fleet of boats in the Berkeley Marina. The fairway is large, the turning basins are convenient, and they have a very good boat yard there. Bathroom facilities definitely not the greatest, compared to some other marinas.
