Sutro Baths is the ruins of a former bathhouse. There is nothing left of the bathhouse other than foundations. The ruins of the swimming pool now form a pond that is sheltered from the ocean and big enough for ducks. There is a good rocky shoreline here, and you can see turnstones and surfbirds if you look closely. The land area next to the ruins is being restored to native plants.
