Ocean Beach has a reputation for being cold and foggy—no matter, that’s what wetsuits and fire pits are for. Located on the far west side of the city, this beach has a community feel like no other, where local surfers, artists and old-timers know each other (and each other’s dogs) by name. The 3.5-mile beach spans the far west side of the city, from the Outer Richmond district to the Outer Sunset. The southern side is home to hardcore surfers who brave the frigid waves, while farther north you’ll find tourists and regulars who make the beautiful trek from Sutro Baths and Lands End. Bonfires are allowed in the 16 designated fire rings, March through October. We recommend arriving early—it’s first-come, first-served and the pits get staked out early on sunny days.
