Seagulls laughing in the dunes, all-american jocks running after a ball and classic beach sheds are all quintessential elements of the California destination. Walk for an hour or stay the day but don’t miss the extraordinary sunset. My favourite way to experience it is by snatching one of the much valued booths on the terrace of the iconic Hotel del...

One of the most beautiful beaches we've been to. You cannot beat the views, the sound of the waves or the sunsets. The sand appears to have gold in it when the sun catches it just right. As you get farther away from the Hotel Del - the tourist crowd thins out a bit and it's quieter. It was too... More

The beach is very clean and well-groomed. you can walk along the shore and enjoy the sites. You can ride your bike around and enjoy the weather.

This is a long beach and great for a walk. If you go all the way down to North Beach, you can watch the locals and their dogs enjoying the beach. Unless you get here early during vacation times, parking close can be an issue. It is a long beach with bathroom facilities at central beach. It is probably my... More

It's a huge, gorgeous beach with thousands of visitors each day, yet I found it to be very clean. Nice.

Way too many dogs off of their leashes on this beach. I had a hard time running without worrying if one was going to attack me or just get in my way, trip me, scare it, and then bite me. owners should be more considerate. There are some shells that you can find near the Del Coronado. I found a... More

Beautiful gold san beaches (it's actually Mica, a mineral). This beach is perfect! Beach volleyball nets, fun rocks to climb and check out sea life. It was the best beach we have ever seen!

Must see to believe the view. Despite the 55 degree temperature, my son decided he must put his feet in the pacific ocean. The sand is clean and the water is crystal clear. I will have to return in the summer.

This is a very clean, huge, wonderful beach. This beach has fantastic views of the coast. My only complaint is that the public restrooms are scarce. We had to go into the Del Coronado Hotel to use the restroom.

I've always known that Silver Strand is the name of the tiny strip of land that connects Coronado with the mainland, (I lived here when I was a teenager), but I didn't realize the name must come from the silver sparkles in the sand and water. What a treat to swim here in November! Shallow beach, gentle breakers made for... More
