Angel Island

Often referred to as the "Jewel of the San Francisco Bay", Angel Island is a gem of the California State Park system offering panoramic vistas of the entire Bay.  Sightseers will enjoy picture-postcard views of the Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco Skyline, Marin, and Mt. Tamalpais.  A clear day on the island is referred to as a 5-bridge day,  when from the top of Mt. Livermore hikers can view the Golden Gate, Bay, Richmond/San Rafael, San Mateo and the Dumbarton bridges.


Angel Island is a short ferry ride away from San Francisco's Fisherman's Wharf, Tiburon or Oakland/Alameda.
