Tiburon (spanish for "Shark") is known for its postcard views that include the San Francisco cityscape and Bay, Sausalito, Angel Island, the Golden Gate Bridge, and its landscape reminiscent of Europe. When you mix that with the proximity to San Francisco, the excellent school system, and the small town feel, it’s no wonder why it’s such a desirable place to call home.
Downtown Tiburon has a lot to offer tourists and residents alike. All of the amenities are there, including quality waterfront restaurants, a grocery store, a great library, coffee shops, bakeries, and unique boutiques.
Outdoor enthusiasts are right at home in Tiburon. Paradise Loop, a popular destination for cyclists, is easily accessible to locals… no trek across the Golden Gate required. The pet-friendly Ring Mountain Preserve is popular with trail runners, mountain bikers and geocaching kids. The ferry terminal makes it easy to spend an afternoon biking or hiking around the Angel Island’s state park.
Many homes here come with a relatively hefty price tag, and correspondingly the community is one of the more affluent in the county. The schools do an excellent job of raising money, making the award-winning Reed School District well-funded and highly sought after. Commuters have a variety of options, including Golden Gate Transit buses, ferry service from the Blue and Gold fleet, or for those who prefer to drive, there’s a shortcut via Trestle Glen to the homes off Paradise Drive.
