During my recent visit to Berkeley, I could visit Berkeley Marina. Though one has to take a short cab ride from the downtown it was really worth visiting. The sunset view from Marina was really amazing.

On a stay at the Doubletree beside the Marina, I enjoyed it as just a place to stroll around and look at the Bay. Watching people fly kites in the adjacent Cesar Chavez Park was always an interesting part of the stroll, and parks with...More

Beautiful waterfront setting with lots of natural paths and flora. Also has a bike path / walking path running through it and along the water for exercise in natural surroundings.

Not an exciting place but surprisingly quiet and isolated-feeling despite being so close to town. Breezy and open, you get plenty of space and nice views of Berkeley on one side and SF on the other.

My husband loves a great view but is not motivated to exercise. I, on the other hand love to walk. The solution is often a walk with a view. Our dog loves the seaside, so its a win, win, win for the 3 of us....More

Ample parking, rolling hills, trail along the beach, nice view. NOTE: place could be pretty windy. Good place to spend about two hours...

I wouldn't know an exact spot to fly kites there, but there is a mobile kite store that may have more information about this, and the Berkeley kite festival might be worth checking out. There is a lot of open space at the... More

Yes, but...not everywhere. There are walkways all around the marina. You will not be able to go down to look at boats that are on private docks. There will be a locked gate at the top. But if you are staying at the hotel, or... More
