Picnic at Point Molate Beach Park

Richmond, California


Added by Nick Garcia

This small beach park is the perfect place for a peaceful afternoon spent with gorgeous views of San Francisco Bay and the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge.

The beach park is very small but has sand along the shore for water access. Along the small cliffs of the beach there are picnic tables and grills for a nice cookout and family picnic. This beach would also be a great place for kayaking or standup paddle boarding as it is fairly secluded and away from major boating activity. Take in the views of the northern bay bridge and Angel Island State Park in the distance.  

Getting there: From Oakland. Take 580 North toward the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge in Richmond. Exit on the very last exit before the tollbooth, which is Stenmark Dr. Follow along this road about a quarter of a mile before you see the Point Molate Beach Park sign to the left of the road. There is no fee to to enter the park.
