When the famous ruins of San Francisco’s Sutro Baths—once the world’s largest indoor swimming pool—get bathed in the glow of the full moon, there’s a novel mystique that just can’t be found during the day.

Prepare Yourself

"Bring a flashlight and go into the cave"

Devon Edwards

Descend the wooden stairs from the main parking area and follow the short trail to the Point Lobos overlook for far and wide views of the mercurial sea. If there’s fog, the visuals are heightened as the moon mingles with the misty seascape. Pure San Francisco Noir.

Sutro Baths is located at the north end of Ocean Beach, where Geary Blvd. and the Great Hwy. meet. The Merrie Way parking lot closes one hour after sunset, but the trails around Sutro Baths remain open. Park outside the lot when visiting after hours. Dog-friendly!
