Not only a lovely beach but also a great place to get a different perspective of the iconic bridge. Parking is available and the road in enable you to also drive through the Presidio, so very much a two for one opportunity.

If you have some extra time while visiting San Fran and the weather is decent, baker beach is worth the visit. Also, China beach is only a few miles away. Beach offers great views of the Golden Gate Bridge and the San Fran shore line....More

Sunset is a good time to be at the beach to watch the sun set in the west. You also get good views of the golden gate bridge and these are from the ocean side (most pictures are taken from the city side)

I do not know 100%, but most Cities have ordinances which do NOT allow overnight camping unless in designated campgrounds, with facilities, which this is not- It's just a parking lot to access the trails
