This spot had been on my bucket list for a while so I was so excited to finally find it. Seriously, whoever put this swing here deserves a big hug. The view of the Golden Gate bridge from here is amazing and you get to swing while looking at it. Doesn’t really get much better than that. I really could have stayed and swung for hours.
To get to the swing you need to find Kirby Cove. Kirby Cove is located in Sausalito, a little town on the other side of the Golden Gate Bridge. The easiest way to get there is to get directions to Battery Spencer. Once you get there you will find several places that you can park. You will see a little pathway to your right and you need to follow that all the way down to the beach. It is about a mile hike to get down there. When we got to the swing we were the only people down on the beach. It felt like we had found a secret spot that nobody else knew about.
So if you are in the Bay area this spot is definitely worth the trip. Even if you don’t really care to swing, the view alone is worth it and it makes for some pretty cool pictures.
