With over 17 miles of continuous shoreline, Tiburon residents have an eye on the water. If you are looking for real estate with a water view, consider living in Tiburon, with sweeping views of the Bay, San Francisco, the Golden Gate Bridge, the Sausalito hills, and Mount Tamalpais.

Unknown to many outside of the area, Paradise Drive is a special part of town, along a quiet expanse of bay to the east. Homes have large lots, and some have bay frontage and private beaches. A little further north on Paradise Drive is the unique waterfront community of Paradise Cay, built out into the bay in the 1960’s.

The Tiburon Peninsula extends about four miles from Highway 101 into San Francisco Bay. The peninsula, shared with the towns of Belvedere and an unincorporated portion of Mill Valley, is about 1 mile wide. The Town of Tiburon occupies about 4.4 square miles, approximately a tenth the size of San Francisco. A large area stretching along the north side of the peninsula is also considered part of town, but is unincorporated and partly administered by Marin County.

Tiburon raises from sea level along the bay to about 300-750 feet along the ridge that runs the length of the peninsula. The high points on the ridge are at Ring Mountain, about 600 feet, and Sugar Loaf, about 750 feet.
