Enjoy Coastal Views at the Muir Beach Overlook

Muir Beach Overlook - Search Nearby - Added by Scott Kranz

Take in panoramic views of the Marin coastline and if you're lucky, get to see migrating gray whales in the fall/winter. Keep in mind, this is a pretty good (romantic) spot to take in a sunset.

The Muir Beach Overlook is one of the most convenient spots to take in an amazing view of the entire coastline, and one of the best places to catch a dramatic sunset. It’s conveniently located one mile north of Muir Beach and parking is easy. It’s a 5 minute walk down the trail to the Overlook. On a clear day, you can see San Francisco’s Sutro Tower, Mount Tam, and out to the Farallon Islands.

Be sure to pack a jacket and dress in layers if you plan to catch the sunset– it can get breezy and cold in the evenings. There are also two vault toilets located in the parking area.

Gorgeous Ocean Views!

On a nice day you'll be able to see SF to the south! Make sure to stop by Muir Beach on your way out, especially on a nice day for some beach fun (can get crowded though)!

Unbelievable view! You have to see it, to believe, this is in our backyard.

I accidentally stumbled across this short overlook walk on my mini-roadtrip around norcal. it was perfect, still, serene and peaceful with expansive views of the ocean on both sides. Middle of summer and still needed a jacket. No one else was there. Perfect stop.

You'll love who you are when you are in Marin!

Marin County is just a little out there. As in one famous bridge away from San Francisco. And right next door to the vineyards and Napa and Sonoma. Closer than you could ever imagine to everything that's unique in this clever corner of California. Take a vacation from the typical vacation
