One of the highest-income cities in California.

Welcome to Belvedere

Wealthy and primarily residential city known for its beautiful waterfront mansions and picturesque setting
Belvedere is an uber-exclusive and wealthy city comprising two islands––Belvedere Island and Corinthian Island––and a lagoon. It connects to Tiburon Peninsula via two causeways, and the two cities share a zip code and post office.
Primarily residential, most homes on Belvedere are mansions that contribute to the area's picturesque setting, including magnificent scenic vistas of the water and islands. These gorgeous estates range in architectural styles, usually Victorian or Mediterranean, with several homes listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Belvedere is also considered one of the highest-income cities in California and the country as a whole.

What to Love

  • Extravagant and ultra-luxurious homes, often in the multi-million dollar range
  • Residential town with no commercialization
  • Beautiful location and elegant manors designed by acclaimed architects

People & Lifestyle

Belvedere is ranked as one of the top places to raise a family in Marin County and one of the top locations for retirees. Considering the area's beautiful setting and high price tags, it's no surprise that Belvedere is home to residents firmly within the high-income bracket, including several famous people.
Even though there isn't downtown or any shops (you'll need to go to nearby Tiburon for most commercial amenities and dining options), Belvedere remains an incredibly desirable place to live. Many of the area's luxe homes were designed by acclaimed architects and boast unparalleled views of the surrounding islands and the water. The town features a tight-knit community, and many locals enjoy boating, often becoming members of one of the two yacht clubs.

Dining, Shopping, & Entertainment

Chic gastropub Tiburon Tavern is ideal for anyone craving classic, farm-to-table dining, and coastal cuisine. With outdoor fire pits and happy hour specials, the tavern makes a great place to hang out with friends. But if you're in the mood for something more upscale and romantic, intimate eatery Caprice boasts stunning bay views and provides a menu filled with classic dishes.

Seafood lovers can't get enough of Sam's Anchor Cafe, famous for its breathtaking vistas, fresh seafood, and lively atmosphere. The cafe overlooks Angel Island and serves traditional American eats and drinks. The Italian seafood-focused Luna Blu features a gorgeous harbor view. If you travel across the San Francisco Bay to Salt & Pepper, you'll find a comfortable neighborhood spot serving seafood and meat dishes paired with local wines.

When shopping in Tiburon, you'll have several different shopping districts to choose from, including the carefully curated women's clothing store Main St. Mercantile. Elsewhere in the area is the Ark Row Shopping Center, a Marin County mall where you can find everything from spices and gourmet candy to clothing and jewelry.

Things to Do

There are many entertaining ways to keep busy in the Tiburon-Belvedere area. The Corinthian Yacht Club in Belvedere offers cruising, sailing instruction, and racing. If you'd rather be a passenger, you can tour the beautiful Angel Island via the Angel Island Tiburon Ferry Company, operating daily. Belvedere is also home to the San Francisco Yacht Club. Founded in 1953, this premier yachting facility is a San Francisco gem thanks to its superb harbor and serene setting in Belvedere Cove.

Enjoy an experience unique to Tiburon at the scenic waterfront park Blackie's Pasture. Centered in the middle of the park is the famed, life-size bronze sculpture of Blackie, visible to all who drive by the grassy area. The 19-acre Paradise Beach Park features sweeping bay views, a fishing pier, rolling hillsides, and a lush redwood grove that makes the perfect picnic backdrop. Perched on a ridgetop, Old Saint Hilary's Preserve boasts fantastic panoramic views of the Tiburon peninsula. The preserve is also home to a historic church. The rare wildflowers and gentle breeze coupled with the majestic vista make this an idyllic picnic spot.

Given the town's rich maritime legacy, it makes sense there would be a local museum for visitors and locals to learn more about the town's history. Railroad & Ferry Depot Museum is well worth a visit.

Besides the parks and popular tourist hotspots, Tiburon also hosts several fun events throughout the year, like the Tiburon Wine Festival, Tiburon Taps Beer Festival, and the Tiburon International Film Festival.


Like Tiburon, Belvedere is part of the Reed Union School District. All three schools in the district are recognized as California Distinguished Schools.
