The charming town of Tiburon is situated on San Francisco Bay, in the state of California. This is in the far west of the United States of America. The name Tiburon actually originates from Spanish and means ‘shark’. This is believed to be due to the fact that leopard sharks are found in large numbers around these waters. Spending your holidays in Tiburon will prove to be a good choice if you like the idea of mainly basing yourself in a laid-back town where there is still plenty happening, plus you will have very easy access to cosmopolitan San Francisco - which is undoubtedly the most tolerant and liberal city in the whole of the US! Rest assured that all properties feature the facilities and amenities you will need to guarantee a perfect stay.
People absolutely love spending their holidays in Tiburon and this is mainly down to the fact that there is just so much to do in the town.

This is the kind of experience that would be hard to find anywhere else!

Once you decide to venture just a little farther, head due south to the awesome city of San Francisco. Trust me when I tell you that this city is like none other in the United States. San Fran is so cosmopolitan and liberal and there is a ‘buzz’ here like nowhere else.
