Tiburon and Angel Island are just across the peninsula from the Bay of San Francisco, just 10 miles north of Sausalito. You can take the daily ferry from Pier 31 at Fishermans Wharf, from the Ferry Building on the Embarcadero or from Sausalito to Tiburon. Once on the Island, you are free to wander around, explore, eat, shop, hike, cycle or laze around. Tiburon is a pretty village where the ocean is dotted with sailboats and the mainland is dotted with shops and cafes. There are charming boutiques, a wide choice of restaurants and a lovely grassy space at Shoreline Park where you can laze in the sun or under the shade of an ancient tree. Once on the island, you don’t need transport and can easily walk to the shopping quarter just beyond the wharf. The views of Golden Gate Bridge are wonderful so make sure you leave enough battery in your smartphone for a few pics. Spend a bit of time atThe Tiburon Railroad-Ferry Museum where you can get a sense of life in Tiburon over a century ago. You can hire bikes on the island and if you want to hike, the trails are well marked and the views are superb. Perfect for the family. Buy a few souvenirs on the way home.
