Rows of apartments near Ocean Beach, on the site what was once Playland amusement park until it was closed in 1972. You can faintly see Dutch Windmill nested in Golden Gate Park from here, too. Ocean Beach is a popular spot for activities: beach volleyball, fishing, campfire, or simply kicking the sands. Water activities is not advised, as Pacific Ocean brings rip tides. The beach is wide and expansive (about 3.5 miles) with white sands like that of a resort town. The Great Highway runs parallel to it along with O’Shaughnessy Seawall. Ice plants with yellow and purple blooms thrive in dune. It’s a great place to sit and listen to the roar of the Pacific and let the waves take away whatever is on your mind.
