Ocean Beach Esplanade

San Francisco, California

Ocean Beach Esplanade Professional Review and Guide

"This expanse of beach is popular with many a group, from surfers who tackle the rough surf (the undertow here is tremendous; swimming is not allowed in the frigid waters), to runners passing over the hard-packed sand when the tide is low, to dogs and their owners out for a little exercise."
