The San Francisco Bay as we know it is a very young landform in geologic time, formed at the end of the last ice age by rising sea levels.

Detailed diagram and explanation of how waves and erosion combines with rock structure to cause differential erosion in a coastline. The waves will erode the soft rock of the discordant coast much faster than the hard creating the alternate bay and headland formation. This explanation includes hand drawn diagrams ideal for replication in student notes or in preparation for examinations.
