High bluffs border the beach to the north and south, while wetlands and a lagoon can be found behind the beach. Nearby, the Muir Beach Overlook provides spectacular panoramic views in every direction (when the weather's clear, of course).

North of the beach is the small community of Muir Beach. Dogs allowed on leash or under voice control in designated areas (excluding lagoon).

GGNRA Update 2017: Muir Beach is part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, managed by the National Park Service. Bay Area dog owner groups and individuals have long been fighting a new dog management plan that would significantly restrict dogs and their owners from large areas of the GGNRA. Implementation of these new rules are on hold due to legal actions. For now, this one of many on-leash and off-leash areas in the GGNRA we can all still enjoy!

Help us keep this beach beautiful and dog-friendly:
• Always follow the posted rules
• Respect natural marine life and habitats
• Be aware of tides and currents
• Pack in and pack out, leaving only paw prints
