“Something for Everyone”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

It doesn't seem possible that a beach in San Diego could be a well kept secret yet this beach is relatively unknown. I've only seen the beach crowded on the fourth of July, there are days when you have the entire area to yourself, especially on the south side. It's a little bit of a drive to get here, the beach is halfway between Imperial Beach and Coronado beach.

Warning, the Silver Strand is a natural beach, it isn't manicured daily like the big Coronado beaches. Seaweed often lines the sand at low tide. You can walk for ever and find seashells galore and you often see sea animals both alive and departed. On any given day you can see kite surfers, dolphins, Navy ships, surfers, fishermen and glorious sunsets.

“Our favorite beach anywhere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

We have been to many of the San Diego beaches and this is the best one with white sand and a long stretch of it. The people watching is fun as there are lots of people from the military base training and lots of weddings too. If you need a beach wheelchair, as I did, you can get it from the lifeguard. It makes a walk on the beach very pleasant and is fairly easy to operate. It took me a while but I got the hang of it.

What a gorgeous beach. First time to west coast and glad this was my first beach! Can walk forever it seems. Kite boarders fun to watch. Going back today armed with water for longer walk.

There is plenty of beach here and it is very clean! There is plenty of beach parking, however you'll need to arrive early!

“Very BIG beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

The beach was very wide and fun at low tide to walk way out into the ocean. We found sand dollars every day. The beach has some debris (dried weeds or kelp) that would be nice if it got picked up once in a while.
