At the end of a small peninsula pointing out into the center of the bay, Tiburon is blessed with gorgeous views. The name comes from the Spanish Punta de Tiburon (Shark Point). Take the ferry from San Francisco, browse the shops on Main St, grab a bite to eat and you’ve seen Tiburon. The town is also a jumping-off point for nearby Angel Island.
The central part of town is comprised of Tiburon Blvd, Juanita Lane and charming Main St. Main St, which is also known as Ark Row, is where the old houseboats have taken root on dry land and metamorphosed into classy shops and boutiques.
