About Marin County

Marin County is just across the Golden Gate Bridge north of San Francisco. The beaches of Marin County vary widely from small beaches in parks on the bay to sandy beaches below the Marin Headlands to the windy and wild beaches of Point Reyes National Seashore. The cities of San Rafael and Tiburon have several parks with shoreline access on San Francisco Bay. Angel Island State Park on the Bay is just a short ferry boat ride away from Tiburon or San Francisco and has beaches, trails, and campgrounds to enjoy. The cities of Mill Valley and Sausalito have easy access to beaches and trails in the Marin Headlands area of Golden Gate National Recreation Area and Mount Tamalpais State Park. This southwestern Marin shoreline has popular beaches near the small towns of Muir Beach, Stinson Beach, and Bolinas. Point Reyes National Seashore makes up the majority of western Marin County. This large park has beaches on all sides of the Point Reyes Peninsula including bird-watching spots on Drakes Bay, great beachcombing beaches on the outer edge, and protected beaches on Tomales Bay. The rest of Marin’s beaches are on the eastern shore of Tomales Bay and on the southern part of Bodega Bay. Sonoma County has picturesque beaches north of Marin County.
