Tiburon’s waterfront location, along with its easy access to San Francisco makes it a very desirable location to live. Many commuters take the ferry to San Francisco, which leaves from a dock on Main Street.

Once a major railroad terminus, Tiburon has transformed the old railroad right of way into a pleasant walking and bicycling path. It begins at Blackie’s Pasture, named after an old swaybacked horse that once lived there. On weekends and evenings, you’ll find many residents enjoying a brisk walk along the path, with children or dogs in tow. Much of Tiburon’s waterfront facing San Francisco is free of development, with a wide grassy ribbon, a perfect place to picnic with friends and family.

Locals need go no further than Tiburon’s historic downtown for exceptional food. Restaurants on the bayside incorporate decks extending over the water with views of the yacht harbor, San Francisco and Angel Island. On sunny weekend afternoons Sam’s Anchor Café is a bustling draw for the millennial crowd. Locals enjoy the convenience of several large groceries and a drug store, not far from downtown.

The newly refurbished Tiburon Movie Theater, with its expansive leather seats, serves wine and gourmet food to enjoy while watching first run films. Ark Row, a block-long enclave of tiny shops that were once floating arks, houses beauty salons, boutique clothing stores and fine restaurants. Tiburon’s Corinthian Yacht Club, founded in 1886, regularly hosts exciting races on the bay.

In the spring and summer, Tiburon’s Main Street sometimes closes to vehicles to become a large alfresco dining area for “Friday Nights on Main.” Local restaurants and bars offer outdoor dining and drinks, with live music.

Tiburon’s first homes were built as summer retreats for wealthy San Franciscans. Real estate includes ultra-modern homes with expansive views of the bay to small, rustic cottages.
