Lonely Planet review

Golden Gate Park ends at this blustery beach, too chilly for bikini-clad clambakes but ideal for hardcore surfers braving riptides (casual swimmers beware). Bonfires are permitted in artist-designed fire pits only; no alcohol allowed. On Ocean Beach's south end, beachcombers spot sand dollars and 19th-century shipwrecks. Stick to paths in fragile dunes, where skittish snowy plover shorebirds shelter in winter.
