Bolinas,  California
Bolinas Beach has moderate waves and ample shoreline often packed with surfers on the weekend. The water is a bit cold and there's no lifeguard, but still, this is one of the loveliest beaches in the San Francisco Bay Area. Just be sure you know where you're going before you set out to drive here--residents of the town of Bolinas like to steal the sign marking the way off the highway to keep the place to themselves.
