Our main reason to visit this beach was to search for sand dollars and shells. We were told this was a great beach for this. I found typical clam shells and no sand dollars. It was relaxing because there was hardly anyone else on the beach and we could sit and watch the waves.

This is an exceptionally nice beach for California. Nice and wide, sparkling gray sands, often uncrowded.

My wife and I stayed at the Loews for our wedding/honeymoon, and this was my first time seeing the ocean at SilverStrand Beach. So glad this was my first experience! The beach is clean, the waves are excellent, and the sunsets are breathtaking. We also found a lot of seashells and sanddollars in the early morning. Beautiful beach. Highly recommend!

Easy trip from the Loews resort and great waves. Not too rough for the younger set but still surf-able.

Most of the time it is quiet and not crowded, so it is perfect for just a stroll or a lay out in the sun and be able to hear the waves! Sea weed is annoying, but hey, it's the price you pay! Very nice place!

Loews had a shuttle down to the Silver Strand State Beach which made it oh so convenient when my husband had to leave during the day for business.

the actual beach area is very nice though there was a lot of seaweed hanging around. We still enjoyed it very much. It seems to be a popular place so it could be its usually cleaner than when we were there.
