There is a good selection of accommodation options in the area, including simple, self-catering properties and a lovely boutique hotel. Many of the best places to stay in Tiburon also offer spectacular waterfront views — a wonderful way to appreciate the area’s natural beauty.

Life in Tiburon is centred on the water. The town is home to three world-renowned yacht clubs, and there are ample opportunities to get out on San Francisco Bay for a day’s sailing. Alternatively, pick a perch at a trendy waterfront restaurant to keep an eye on the action with a glass of wine in hand.

Ten minutes away by ferry, Angel Island State Park — the largest island in San Francisco Bay — promises terrific views and some excellent hiking trails. Head to Muir Woods to hike amongst ancient redwoods or venture to Ring Mountain for great mountain biking trails, including Tiburon Ridge Trail and the challenging Paradise Loop. If you’re keen to simply unwind, Stinson Beach is the place to go.

Back in Tiburon itself, you can expect eclectic boutiques and cafés on Main Street, perfect for some laid-back shopping. History buffs will be fascinated by the Railroad & Ferry Depot Museum and Old St Hilary’s, a former mission church set amongst spectacular wildflowers.
