Located in Clipper Cove on San Francisco Bay, Treasure Isle Marina is situated in one of the most scenic and well-protected small boat harbors on the West Coast. Offering spectacular views of the San Francisco skyline, the Oakland-Bay Bridge and East Hills just to mention a few, this marina is a hidden jewel in the rough.
Everyone who visits Treasure Island gets the picture of San Francisco from the water’s edge on the Avenue of the Palms. Want to out-Instagram your friend who went to the flea market? Head up to Nimitz Dr off Macalla Rd (just past the stairs to Clipper Cove), walk to the end of the road, and follow the trail into Blue Park. You’ll find a perfect bluff overlooking the Bay Bridge to the left, the Golden Gate in the distance to the right, and the city, in all of its glory, dead ahead.
Restaurants on Treasure Island
Woods Island Club (422 Clipper Cove Way)
Woods Beer has multiple taprooms around the Bay Area, but we think the best one to go to is on Treasure Island. The Woods Island Club features picnic tables, palm trees, and even a sandy beach. They brew all kinds of beers, from IPAs to saisons to herbal ales. The Island Club serves up empanadas, but not much else is on the menu yet. That just means that you’ll have to explore Treasure Island’s other eateries, such as …
Aracely Cafe (401 13th St.)
Any place that offers brunch seven days a week is a winner in our book. And when you see the extensive menu at Aracely Cafe, we think it will be a winner in yours, too. Everything from risotto balls to cornmeal waffles to rack of lamb is yours for the asking. They have a great drink menu, as well.
MerSea (699 Avenue of the Palms)
Plenty of massive container ships pass through the Bay on their way to the Port of Oakland—which makes eating at MerSea, a restaurant that is built inside repurposed shipping containers, a very meta experience. The offerings here are a little simpler but by no means less satisfying. There’s ceviche, fish and chips, and a creation known as The Jersey Girl Sandwich, just to name a few.
Fat Grape Winery (1080 Avenue M)
Fat Grape Winery has a special distinction that has nothing to do with its wines. It’s housed in what might be the most unusual building on Treasure Island: the old Navy brig! What once held unruly sailors now holds some premium sulfite-free wines. They’re small volume but high quality. Stop by for a free tasting!
Sol Rouge Vineyard & Winery (29 Avenue G)
This winery gets its name from the red soil of its vineyards, located north of Napa Valley in a very fertile area for wine cultivation. Their Treasure Island tasting room is open to the public on weekends and by appointment on weekdays.
Treasure Island Wines (995 Ninth St.)
This was the first operational winery and tasting room on the island. Today, they share their space with a number of artisanal winemakers, which means visitors to their tasting room are getting a lot more variety than they might expect. They plan a number of seasonal events throughout the year, and you can arrange for private tastings as well.
VIE Winery (448 Clipper Cove Way)
Their grapes grow elsewhere, but VIE Winery’s tasting room is on Treasure Island. VIE specializes in Rhone varietal and Zinfandel-based wines. Their establishment on Treasure Island features an outdoor bocce ball court that you can reserve before your visit.
The Winery SF (30 Avenue G)
They’re not the only tasting room on Treasure Island, but they are the recipients of many top awards and all-star ratings for their various vintages. At The Winery SF, you can taste assorted reds and whites, become a part of their wine club, or even stage a special private event, from a company happy hour to a wedding!
