One path from the park would lead you to the picturesque sandy beach of San Francisco. You can find hundreds of people walking, jogging, or just sitting and watching the sea in the beach. San Francisco beach is a place very much loved by most of tourists visiting San Francisco.

Near the Aquatic Park, the historical building of Maritime Museum is located. The design of the building is unique and it is about 70 years old.
