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.

Very quiet day on a Monday! Great views of the Bay which is enhanced by the interesting history of the island. Monday/Tuesdays are quiet but the Museum was closed:( Also very important to make plans ahead of time for the ferry ride back as there are only two ferries in the afternoon and you dont want to miss the last one. We also saw people on the ferry who had rented bikes at Pier 41, rode over the Golden Gate bridge, went to Sausalito, Tiburon and then took the ferry back via Angel Island to Pier 41! Another school group had come by kayak from Tiburon and was planning on overnighting on the island!
Not to be missed for sure!

Walk around the Angel Island by the perimeter loop is a breathtaking experience with complete 360 degree view of the entire bay and the various bridges and islands in it. We also incorporated a side trip to Mt. Livermore summit in our hike.

This one is a toss up. It has great views, challenging hills, and wonderful historical buildings to see and even tour. But you are spending some of the time dealing with trams and other road traffic if you are on foot and it is definitely "heavily trafficked." Also you are walking on asphalt the whole time.
