As casual and relaxed as the neighborhood itself, Marina Bay’s cafés, restaurants, and bistros offer fresh fare with an emphasis on flavor, quality and a connection to the Bay. Comfort food can be found at every turn, with local favorites including hearty Italian dishes at Salute e Vita Ristorante, modernized American classics at Assemble and creative British pub grub at Up and Under Pub and Grill.
Secluded in the best way possible, yet well-connected to major freeways and urban conveniences, Marina Bay locals have easy access to the retail districts of notable East Bay destinations. Explore the extensive produce selection at Berkeley Bowl, stroll Solano Avenue for an array of coffee shops and boutiques, or visit the all-organic farmers market in North Berkeley, the birthplace of California cuisine.
Marina Bay is a community of parks – 5 to be exact – all connected by a crystal blue waterfront and views of the San Francisco skyline. Coastal trails and public promenades are just steps from your door, perfect for hiking, biking, and dog walking. A new ferry service from Richmond to San Francisco, coming in 2018, will allow residents of The Shores to shave an entire hour or more off their commutes, giving more time to enjoy this park community. Take a lesson at Tradewinds Sailing School, learn about Marina Bay’s vital role in World War II shipbuilding at the Rosie the Riveter Monument, or spend a day fishing and birdwatching at Barbara & Jay Vincent Park.
