“First time for us”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012

Basically a paved parking lot for self contained only Rv's on a sandy beach next to a restricted military beach. Was a unique experience to be able to step out directly on to a sandy beach. Sunset views were awesome and during the day we saw military battleships leaving San Diego on training exercises. You are not permitted to walk north on the beach-even saw patrols to stop people. Bring your bike as we road a nice level path to visit Coronado Island and it's historic 1800's hotel about 4 miles away. Opposite to this campground is a rental place for paddle boards, kayaks, sail boats, etc.

“Great Family place”

We have been coming here for years. There are many families in San Diego that have a very wonderful history with this beach especially the camping area. We still loive it even though our kids are grown.

“Camp right on the beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

Great place to camp on the beach and beat the crowds. The waves are excellent for boogie boarding. There is a slight fee, but worth it.

“Beautiful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2012

We live in Santa Barbara with gorgeous beaches by the dozen. This beach in Coronado is lovely, kept clean and the view can't be beat from here. One of the best!
