BELVEDERE

Located at the end of the Tiburon Peninsula, this is Marin's smallest incorporated community with a population of approximately 2300. It is also one of the most exclusive. There is just enough room for some of the most expensive homes in Marin, many offering fabulous views, as well as the historic San Francisco Yacht Club. Belvedere, an island a mile long and less than one-half mile wide, is connected to Tiburon by a causeway. Belvedere.

This small, vibrant community celebrated its 100th anniversary in 1996. Belvedere, the Italian word for "beautiful view", is Marin's geographically smallest and most exclusive incorporated town. The island is approximately one mile long and less than one-half mile wide. The lagoon and causeways which separate the island of Belvedere from Tiburon are surrounded by beautiful homes and majestic views of San Francisco Bay, the Golden Gate Bridge, Angel Island, and Belvedere Lagoon. In addition to the historic San Francisco Yacht Club, the limited space of Belvedere is host to some of the most expensive homes in Marin.
