Baker Beach in San Francisco

Did you know that now massive Burning Man festival started from a gathering of a few friends at Baker Beach in San Francisco in the ’80s? That’s where I went after my first Burning Man experience last year, to relax after the festival and before the oncoming cycling trip down to San Diego with two friends.

Now, that public nudity is outlawed on the streets of San Francisco, Baker Beach may be the only place in the city where body freedom can be practiced in the open air any time of the year. As long as you find nice enough weather for that. Many people, including me, think of San Francisco as a warm sunny place, as the image of California usually presented in the media. In fact, it can get chilly and foggy there, even in the middle of the summer. Coming there after New York’s hot summer and then Burning Man, I was sort of shocked to see people in jackets. Luckily, the following days got warmer, so we could enjoy the beach.

The beach is surrounded by a beautiful park,

and it provides iconic views of the Golden Gate Bridge too.

The bridge inspired us for some posing, doing the body bridge was the most obvious.

It was also nice to move around, as it wasn’t that warm despite the sun, and the water almost never get warm enough for swimming there. So, if you don’t feel like volleyball (there is a pitch with a net at the beach) or jogging, handstand is a good way to warm up.

  1. Technically you are on Marshall’s Beach which is just north of Baker Beach. While they are connected, from the shoreline, it would be difficult to get from one beach to the other. Excellent set of photos.

    1. did you hear we were set on a long distance bike ride? 😉 and we did handstands in between… well, I guess we just do a lot of different sports and eat relatively healthy (no fast-food or much soda, at least)

    Could you tell us where to buy some of the cook sandals you wear with the toes??
