Make holiday rental accommodation or an apartment in San Francisco Bay your home away from home

San Francisco, California, is a hugely famous holiday destination, but many visitors don’t take time to explore the rest of the huge, natural bay on which the city stands, preferring instead to immerse themselves in San Francisco’s many attractions, sights and sounds. Although this makes for an excellent holiday, San Francisco Bay hides a few secret gems which are well worth investigating if you are ever in the San Francisco Bay area.

Things to do on holiday in San Francisco Bay

The constant winds which rip off the ocean make the San Francisco Bay an absolute haven for sailors and water sports enthusiasts, especially those looking to enjoy kite-boarding and windsurfing. The bay is regularly filled with yachts and boards locked in battle as regattas are a usual sight on the water. Many of the world’s finest yachtsmen are based in here, meaning that the San Francisco Bay sailing schools are among the best in the world.

The Mount Tamalpais State Park is a beautiful area in San Francisco Bay, designed to allow visitors to gain the maximum recreational pleasure and leave the minimum of damage, meaning that visitors are treated to mountain biking and walking trails, plenty of water sports and a huge array of wildlife, especially bird life. The San Francisco Bay Bird Observatory helps monitor and protect the bird species which call San Francisco Bay home.

Wine tours in the San Francisco Bay area are hugely popular too, due to the proximity and grape variations of the Napa Valley. Part of California’s wine country, the Napa Valley is filled with small, family owned vineyards, many of which you can tour. In the same area of San Francisco Bay, Calistoga is the perfect destination for pampering yourself, with spa facilities, mud baths and massages galore.

Places to holiday in San Francisco Bay

The city of San Francisco is the main attraction in the San Francisco Bay area, with such global icons as the Golden Gate Bridge and the island fortress of Alcatraz among its finest monuments. There is so much to do in San Francisco that nothing short of a tourist guide to the city could do it justice. With so much shopping, so many restaurants and such a lively entertainment scene, who would not choose to visit San Francisco for a few days from any holiday rental accommodation in the San Francisco Bay area.

However, the real gem of San Francisco Bay is Tomales. A tiny village on the remote Tomales Bay, a rental house here is in one of the most natural, beautiful areas you can find, with delightful beaches hidden by tree covered coves. It is so natural and peaceful in Tomales that migrating whales, sea birds and even elephant seals can be seen in the surrounding waters.

Weather in San Francisco Bay

San Francisco Bay is blessed with a remarkable climate, which averages 14°C over the whole year. In summer, temperatures reach an average of 18°C in the warmest month (September), and a mild 9°C in January.
