You’ll want to have your camera ready because it is true…when you are on top of Angel Island “on a clear day you can see forever.”
In addition to the full on view of the San Francisco City Skyline pictured here, from Angel Island’s summit – Mount Livermore, you’ll get top of the world views of California icons such as the Golden Gate Bridge, the Bay Bridge, Mount Tamalpais, and neighboring Island – Alcatraz.
The views from Angel Island State Park’s beaches are also something to write home about. Imagine enjoying a delicious picnic while basking on a white sandy beach and gazing across the sunlit San Francisco Bay to feast your eyes on the sparkling San Francisco Skyline and the Golden Gate Bridge. With an enjoyable, moderate level hike to Camp Reynolds Beach or Pearls Beach located on Angel Island State Park – you too can have a beach picnic in paradise.
When you disembark from The Angel Island Tiburon Ferry, pick up a park map and head for the park visitor center where you can learn more about the highlights and historic spots to check out on Angel Island.
