Camping this past March 2015 was a wonderful, relaxing experience. My sister had front row beach access spot, I had a second row spot. Beautiful ocean view, sound of the waves, beautiful sunsets. Perfect weather during day in March, a little chilly at night. The camp has water and electric hook ups and are all marked and are ample for... More

Couldn't find more perfect way to start off our road trip! You literally park right up to the sand. The bluff is not horrible but will be removed in April. You still can see the ocean from your RV, just you can't see your kids if their out on the beach and you're on the ground by your RV bbq.... More

We were on our way through Coronado and stopped here for our last activity of the day. What a beautiful location. On the beach there was not a lot of people maybe because we were there on a Tuesday afternoon. There was hardly any seaweed on the beach which was very pleasant. There was a lot of different sea shells... More

I shouldn't write this review, because it is tricky enough to get one of the beach front RV spots. However, I would do a disservice to my fellow travelers if I didn't give my truthful opinion of our stay. We had read some of the other negative reviews of this location and so our hopes were high, but expectations low.... More

It is about 5 miles south of the town so it is isolated. However it is a nice beach with nice sand. I don't think there are any concessions but I am not sure.

Free shuttle from Loews made this easy to access. Great for kids and walking on the beach. This is a natural beach.

My husband and I visited San Diego for the first time this past November. We spent a week in California (started in San Fran, then LA, and finally San Diego). Walking on the ocean side of Silver Strand Beach at sunset was one of the most memorable moments of our whole vacation! It was pretty much just the two of... More

Fantastic way to see the ocean and downtown San Diego. We highly recommend bringing your bike or renting one if you stay on Coronado Island. Safe and easy route along the Strand to ride, then vary your route back through the quaint side streets or along the parks!
