This One Destination Has The Absolute Bluest Water Near San Francisco

San Francisco may be blessed with absolute beauty, but—between the busy bay, a few man-made lakes, and the expansive Pacific Ocean—finding true-blue waters is a touch more difficult in this little corner of the world. So, let’s travel a bit north up the California coastline to reach Muir Beach, a positively gorgeous stretch of sand tucked under the Marin Headlands, where you’ll find the ocean in all its untamed glory.

For more Pacific serenity, head to this hidden beach in San Francisco that will take you a million miles away from it all.
