The Town of Tiburon is also commonly associated with Belvedere Island because of their proximity to each other, however they are two different municipalities. Tiburon takes up most of the Tiburon Peninsula and has a picturesque downtown and Ferry access to both Angel Island and San Francisco. It has a great expanse of level biking and walking paths along Richardson Bay, which extend from Blackies Pasture to past Downtown Tiburon.

Homes here often have great Bay views, and some back up to open space with convenient access to hiking trails. Because of the unbelievable views of San Francisco, the Golden Gate Bridge and the Bay, homes here are among the highest priced in Marin County.

Many celebrities live in Tiburon, including Santana and Lars Ulrich of Metallica.
