Pretty beach, don't get caught with any adult beverages - it's a no-no! ;) Just keep 'em undercover.

It costs $10 to park, and the beach is covered in sea weed. Coronado municipal beach is much nicer and cleaner

This is my favorite beach in SD. Never over crowded and you can walk for miles. I go there every time I vacation in SD.

This beach now has camping. Apparently it's a newer feature, although I'm not from the area...just heard someone say it. The beach is beautiful and Coronado Island is gorgeous. We rented bikes and had a good time exploring the area and San Diego. For a state park it was quite expensive... about twice as much per night as Oregon state... More

I visited the Loew's Hotel on Coronado and walked over to the beach while I visited. The beach was nice, it was not too crowded, and it looked to have good parking. They had chair rentals and concessions available at the beach as well. I would visit again.

Can you say no trash and no crowds on a perfect beach and believe it? Well you should as that is what you will find at Silver Strand Beach. The waves are mellow yet have good shape. Nice to teach first day board use for a surfer and easy for kids to play in the water without getting hammered.

We are local to San Diego but have never felt the need to pay to go to the beach. We like Fiesta Island that is actually away from the beach crowds and calm enough waters that you can just hang out in the water. Fiesta Island was closed this last weekend for some boat races and it was super hot... More

Having been San Diego County residents for most of our lives, and never camping on the beach, this was our first time. We chose Silver Strand after a beach front site become available on line. We heard about the new improvements (electric and water) so we gave it a try mid-week. We were worried about the "party crowd" noise beforehand... More

My daughters wedding was spectacular there! We used True Beach Events. They were fantastic. The beach setting was so perfect. We stayed at Loews Coronado on the Bay which was right across the street. They were also the best. Our experience was so perfect.

A beautiful walking beach, the Silver Strand is a must for all. The next time, it might be fun to take a kite to try it out.
