Nice small beach with lots of families and dog owners. Get here before noon to get a parking spot. If the kids are super energetic, you can spend their energy by walking on the numerous trails around the area. Spend the morning here and head down to Pelican for a pint and some roast beef.Recommended for:

Gayle recently suggested that we take a field trip and take a walk on the Beach. Although we love the San Mateo Coast, we decided on a shorter trip to Muir Beach, including Lunch at The Pelican Inn.
Muir Beach is located about 2 miles from the entrance to Muir Woods and a nice windy drive through the eucalyptus trees, one you get past the back up at the Mill Valley "T". On the day Gayle and I visited, parking was available and we enjoyed a nice hand in hand stroll to the beach. I suggested to Gayle that we enjoy a "From Here to Eternity" moment, but all I got was a "You've Got To Be Kidding" Look!
The Beach itself is about 1000 feet long and 200 feet wide, is comfortably secluded, and features coarse clean sand and several large boulders that were fun to climb. The Beach wasn't crowded and the folks here were a diverse bunch that like us were really enjoying a really nice day. We walked along the shore, hiked a little but up the hill, admired the houses within unincorporated Muir Beach, and promised ourselves that we should do this more often.Recommended for:
