Belvedere homes provide commanding views of San Francisco Bay, Angel Island, Alcatraz, Mount Tamalpais, the Golden Gate Bridge, and the world famous San Francisco skyline. With waterfront vistas that rival the Cote de Azur, Belvedere is one of Marin's most exclusive enclaves. Waterfront activities are the reason many move to Belvedere. Belvedere, like its neighboring communities Tiburon and Sausalito, was a fishing village, and today is an epicenter for the recreational sailing community.
Located on two former islands (Belvedere Island and Corinthian Island) now filled in with causeways, and separated by a private lagoon popular with kayakers, and kids learning to sail, Belvedere is all about water. The well-known San Francisco Yacht Club is on Corinthian Island. The town has a very active and involved population of just over 2,000 people who enjoy the considerable biodiversity, Mediterranean climate, and unparalleled schools. The temperatures are moderate and range from a low of 43 degrees in the winter to a high of 75 degrees during the summer.
