A Maximus Guide to Tiburon, California
A scenic peninsula town on the Bay sited just north of San Francisco, Tiburon is accessible by ferry or car via Highway 101 and Tiburon Boulevard. Nestled on the pristine water’s edge of Marin County, the charming coastal enclave is also home to Maximus’ community, The Cove — a shoreline array of apartments, a private marina and landscaped grounds.
One of the more expensive real estate markets in the U.S., Tiburon is highly desirable for its range of idyllic and enchanting small-town heritage and proximity to the best of what the Bay Area has to offer. Below, explore Maximus’ ultimate guide to Tiburon.
Moments Away From Wine Country
Situated just south of Wine Country, Tiburon is merely a drive away from the world-renowned vineyards of Napa and Sonoma. Locals don’t even need to venture far, as Jerry Horn’s Tiburon Wine on Main Street will have you covered with sensational curations sourced from Marin, Napa, Sonoma, and Mendocino. Swing by on your trip to The Ark Row Shopping Center, a collection of historic boat houses converted into modern stores and homes.
When it comes down to the local dining scene, it’s tough to beat the longtime favorite Luna Blu, which serves authentic Italian seafood fare with a California touch. Consistently a town favorite from year to year, Luna Blu allows guests to enjoy locally sourced ingredients on their romantic waterfront patio. Honorable mentions always include Sam’s Anchor Café and Tiburon Tavern for quintessential Cali eats.

Nature at your Doorstep
Perhaps the most unrivaled component of the Tiburon experience is the scenery. Head down to Paradise Beach County Park to experience breathtaking panoramic bay views or even embark on a canoeing adventure. Shoreline Park in the south is also an exceptional spot to picnic or gaze at the distant skyline.
If you’re looking to expand your outdoor excursion, you can head to the Tiburon Ferry Terminal and take a quick ride to Angel Island State Park, the largest natural island in the San Francisco Bay, offering some of the best views of the surrounding area. With great hiking trails and many other recreational opportunities readily available, Angel Island is truly a hidden gem in the midst of the urban Bay Area.
Once you touch down on Tiburon’s lush nature parks and charming downtown scene, you’ll immediately understand why it’s one of the most coveted places to live in America. If you’re looking to call Tiburon your home, look no further than the resort-style amenities and waterfront living at The Cove.
