Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

This small cove between Lands End and Baker Beach provides a welcome, uncrowded, dog-free retreat. (On clear days, you’ll still see the Golden Gate Bridge in the distance.) The beach is said to be named after Chinese fishermen during the Gold Rush-era, who would dock their boats along the coastline and camp out on the sand; you’ll find a stone monument devoted to them at the edge of the parking lot. Today, it’s the haunt of middle-aged swim clubs who take their frigid laps in the morning. There are several tall, craggy rocks jutting out of the water that hoodie-clad beach-goers claim as personal islands, as well as shallow, sandy caves along the shoreline. The beach isn't large, so get there early if you want a spot in sun.
