Ayala Cove (pictured above) is the most kid-friendly beach on the island, and the easiest to get to overall. Additional Angel Island Beaches can be accessed by foot to include Perles Beach, Quarry Beach, Camp Reynolds Beach, and China Cove.
Access to some of the beaches may be limited at times, so do pick up a map at the Visitors Center located near the dock at Ayala Cove when you arrive, and ask about any beach and trail closures and/or updates. Round out your beach day in paradise with a bike ride segue tour (rentals available on Angel Island) or hike on the established trails on the island.
What to Bring: Sunscreen, a broad rimmed hat, sunglasses, water, etc. Also, in addition to any food and beverages you want to enjoy on your getaway, pack along a blanket or beach chairs to sit on, and a swimsuit and towels in case you want to take a dip. Keep in mind, the weather can change at any time on the bay so dress in layers.
Let the magic begin…

PS: Captain Maggie’s seafaring advice: Our Maritime Motto is “Be Prepared for Anything.” Whenever you are planning to be away for a day, it’s a good idea to pack a few extra protein bars, water bottles, and a travel size emergency kit. While the chances are you will never need them, it will give you peace of mind knowing you are ready for anything!
