Boating in Belvedere
Boating and yachting have been an important part of the community from the beginning. The town has two established yacht clubs, the Corinthian Yacht Club, founded in 1886, and the older San Francisco Yacht Club, founded in 1869
The China Cabin, a National Maritime Monument, on Beach Road (a short walk toward downtown Tiburon) was the social saloon of the SS CHINA (1866). The gilded and well-restored Victorian drawing room was salvaged before the sidewheeler was burned for scrap metal. It’s open to the public from April through October on Saturdays and Sundays from 1 to 4 pm. This waterfront cabin can be rented from the Belvedere-Tiburon Landmarks Society for special gatherings.
The best way to experience the charm and elegance of Belvedere is from a boat or kayak on the Bay, or by walking the town’s winding streets.
