Stinson Beach is a town just north of San Francisco with a well-known beach recreation area. The town can easily be reached by taking Highway 1 north from San Francisco.

Stinson Beach is known for being slightly warmer and more welcoming than San Francisco's Ocean Beach. However, it also is home to a notoriously feisty shark population, and so perhaps swimming here is a bit...questionable?
