Picture perfect San Francisco Bay views on this tranquil tour of a remote island with hardly a car in sight. Away from the hustle of the city, Angel Island offers a retreat to tranquility surrounded by magnificent San Francisco Bay views. The Perimeter Road provides access to pretty much everything else one can see and do on the island! It's got fantastic views around the bay, it's a fun walk and a good bike ride. When taking a ferry, all walks start at Alaya Cove (formerly Hospital Cove). Pick up a map while there. The Cove also houses segway and bike rentals, a small store and restaurant, the Park Museum, the bus tour, and picnic grounds. Do check out the Museum for the interpretive exhibits, history, and island overview.
