Set against the sparkling backdrop of the San Francisco Bay, Tiburon is a picturesque, historic town in Marin County, just north of the Golden Gate Bridge. Boasting a village like atmosphere, Tiburon joins Belvedere, a small, exclusive residential city, on the tip of the Tiburon Peninsula.
The groomed greenbelt along the waterfront walking path just off Main Street and Ark Row offer unsurpassed views of San Francisco and Marin County, and is one of the most romantic spots in the entire Bay Area.
The scenic Tiburon Peninsula is located on the San Francisco Bay and has breathtaking views of Angel Island and the Golden Gate bridge. Residents and visitors alike enjoy the convenient ferry service to both Angel Island State Park, a haven for biking and hiking, Sausalito, or to San Francisco, which is just six miles across the bay. Commuters queue up daily for the commute ferry to the financial district.
