Address Waldo Point Harbor 1 Gate 5 Rd C, Sausalito, CA 94965, USA

Popular for its small floating houses, the port of Waldo Point was once a major shipyard whose role during the Second World War was notable.

Popular with the Beat generation in the 1950s, the former Waldo Point shipyard quickly established itself as a peaceful haven away from the hustle and bustle of San Francisco. An intellectual bastion, the place welcomed many artists in search of inspiration, like Otis Redding, whose floating cabin was nearby. Little by little, things evolved and the waterfront was transformed again. Today, it is a favourite with nature lovers looking for tranquillity.
