Much of what Wikipedia says about Stinson Beach aptly describes it, except the fog. All Bay Area residents know that fog is not a phenomenon all year round. But it can be prevalent in the late summer. That said, Stinson is the beach most residents of San Francisco and Marin head to on hot (by our standards) days. Unlike most beaches in the area, it faces South and has fine sand the seems to stretch for miles. But beware of transporting anyone in your car susceptible to motion sickness, as the roads leading to it are long sets of curves.
The town itself is tiny. There are two principal groups of housing: inside Seadrift and outside Seadrift. Seadrift is a gated community where most houses face either the beach, Seadrift Lagoon, or Bolinas Lagoon. Some own year round houses there, many others choose to rent for a week or two in the summer. Real estate is not inexpensive either inside or outside Seadrift, unless one finds a summer shack in need of everything.

Stinson Beach is a census-designated place in Marin County, California, on the west coast of the United States. Stinson Beach is located 2.5 miles (4 km) east-southeast of Bolinas, at an elevation of 26 feet (8 m). The population of the Stinson Beach CDP (census-designated place) was 632 at the 2010 census.
 
Stinson Beach is about a 35-minute drive from the Golden Gate Bridge on California's Highway 1. It is near important attractions such as Muir Woods National Monument, Muir Beach, and Mount Tamalpais. It has a long beach, where the cold water promotes fog throughout the year.

Stinson Beach is a popular day trip for people in the San Francisco Bay Area and for tourists visiting northern California. Although most visitors arrive by private car, Stinson Beach is linked to Marin City by a daily bus service, and the network of hiking trails around Mount Tamalpais also reaches the town. The beach is one of the cleanest in the state, and sandy, unlike the rockier neighboring beach in Bolinas.
