About Muir Beach

Muir Beach, California, USA

Heading north on Highway 101, from the Golden Gate Bridge, the small southern Marin "town" of Muir Beach is just 6 miles from the Highway 1 exit. It's comprised of around 150 homes of mainly full-time occupants, who are lucky enough to enjoy the 2 beaches, the surrounding Golden Gate National Recreation Area, Mt. Tamalpais, nearby Muir Woods National Monument, Green Gulch Farm/Zen Center, Slide Ranch and, of course the "old" English Pub, The Pelican Inn. This beautiful area is full of wildlife: Monarch butterflies in the pine trees, salmon in Redwood Creek, frogs in the pasture, fox, birds, deer, coyote…! Horses and dogs are usually allowed on the beaches and some trails (but be sure to check with the rangers for updates or changes), the waves are great for boogie boarders and kayakers, the fishing is plentiful, and the star gazing is endless! The Community Center has classes, craft fairs, and can be rented for events, the Fire Department is volunteer and has a fun rock-n-roll fundraiser BBQ each Memorial Day Sunday, the children attend public school in Mill Valley, the zip code is Sausalito's, there's no cable T.V. (but there's Bookmobile and Muir Beach has its own wireless internet) and the pizza guy won't drive the curvy road!

The history is full of Miwok and Portuguese tales, and the current locals are so very pleased to be able to live in such a healthy piece of paradise! It is my pleasure to bring this site to the people of Muir Beach and to those who feel strongly about and connected to its beauty! Please enjoy your visit, comment in the Guest Book or email us, use the services of the locals and come back often!
