Sunny spring weather is in the forecast, so it’s the perfect time to get out there and appreciate good ol’ fashioned California beauty. These beaches are all under a 3-hour drive from SF, which is arguably the perfect amount of time before the drive gets too long. In fact, most of these beauties are under an hour drive for those favoring quicker trip! Now go have some fun.
Please note: Due to 2017’s winter storms Route 1’s Pfieffer Canyon Bridge was wiped out making some of these beaches difficult to reach. On October 13, 2017, the replacement bridge was opened, however, travelers should expect high amounts of traffic as people embrace the excitement of driving Route 1. There have also been ongoing repairs between Muir Beach and Stinson Beach. Please consult the California DOT website before making travel plans.
