Welcome to Sea Cliff

All the privacy and exclusivity you could want in a waterfront suburb.

This community is a welcome reminder of San Francisco’s varied landscape.

In addition to its advantageous seaside location, Sea Cliff housing is diverse and stunning. Single-family homes come in an array of beautiful architectural styles. Occupying less than a fifth of a square mile, Sea Cliff is an exclusive neighborhood that attracts tech luminaries and other high-net-worth individuals.

Local Lifestyle

On any given day, Sea Cliff locals explore trailheads and nature walks, wander Sea Cliff Avenue, and revel in the exclusive suburb crowning San Francisco’s buzzing cityscape. The countless attractions at the neighborhood’s edge keep residents and tourists busy, and locals are keen on Sea Cliff’s hidden treasures.

Perhaps the district’s biggest lure is accessibility to hiking trails. Maintaining a connection with nature can be challenging when living in a metropolis like San Francisco, but living in Sea Cliff makes that fantasy a reality.

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

Sea Cliff features several excellent dining establishments ready for your morning caffeine boost or dinner dates with your sweetheart. Start your day positively with a fabulous latte and honey lavender shortbread from Bazaar Cafe. Snag a satisfying European-style deli lunch at New World Market.

Delectable and approachable, Pacific Cafe offers a seafood-centric menu fitting for its location. You’ll come for the fried oysters and stay for whole crab diablo, sauteed in the shell with garlic, butter, cracked pepper, and scallions.

Antiquing and shopping for international treasures is a Sea Cliff pastime. Gaslight & Shadow Antiques is an inviting store brimming with one-of-a-kind jewelry, collectibles, porcelain, china, glassware, crystals, cookbooks, souvenirs, and more. You’re bound to find a consignment item or two that will be a conversation starter at your next dinner party.

Things to Do

Spending time outdoors is a favored pastime among the nature lovers that call this coveted neighborhood home. Sutro Heights is a stunning, historic, cliffside park featuring several trailheads and a rich history. Self-made millionaire Adolph Sutro built the park in 1885 as an elegant and refined public garden spanning over 20 acres (known today as Lands End). Once a public bathhouse offering seven saltwater swimming pools, the Sutro Baths are now in ruins and a historical landmark worth visiting for the incredible views and history.

When splashing in saltwater and building sandcastles with family is in order, pack a picnic and head to China Beach. In addition to gorgeous views of the Golden Gate Bridge and the Marin Headlands, you can glimpse tidepools here. Head to the trailhead at the end of Sea Cliff Avenue to view a monument dedicated to the Chinese fisherman who camped on the beach long ago. If you prefer a relaxing night of watching intriguing cinema, stop by Balboa Theatre to see everything from indie films and special screenings to the latest Hollywood blockbusters.
