McNears Beach Park

McNears Beach Park

An Oasis Alongside San Pablo Bay

55-acre McNears Beach Park sits in a beautiful sheltered cove along the shores of San Pablo Bay. A swimming pool and snack bar are open during the summer season. Year-round facilities include group picnic areas, expansive turf, sand volleyball courts, renovated tennis courts, and a popular fishing pier for sturgeon, striped bass, shark, perch, halibut, and crab.

A designated “trailhead” on the San Francisco Bay Area Water Trail, McNears Beach offers easy carry-in access for kayaks and canoes. Parking and pier are wheelchair accessible. Learn about park hours and fees for entry, parking and pool use. Sorry, no dogs or other companion animals at McNears, except service animals.

McNears Beach Park is located at 201 Cantera Way, San Rafael.
From Hwy 101 in San Rafael, take exit 452 for Central San Rafael east. Take 2nd St east, which merges into 3rd St, and then turns into Point San Pedro Rd. Follow Point San Pedro Rd for 3.6 miles, turn right at Cantera Way, and follow to the large parking lot at the end.
