It’s hard to believe that these ancient ruins used to be a public swimming hole. But yes, the “Sutro Baths” were once several fresh and salt-water wading pools. Constructed by Adolpho Sutro in 1896, the baths were a popular destination until it caught fire and burned down in 1966. Now the foundation is all that exists and sits right on the coastline north of Ocean Beach. It is still a common destination and is now protected by the Golden Gate National Recreation Area.
