“Chula Vista to Coronado”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

Great bike path to enjoy hours of riding. Never crowded and the State Park is a great place to play in the surf.

“Great Private beach”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

We came to this beach for a couple of hours. The resort provides a shuttle to take you across the road to the beach. They provide ou and the family with everything ou need--towels, chairs, boogie boards and sand toys. It was a very quiet part of the beach, only thing missing was somewhere to get food, but we were told that in advance so we brought our own snacks and drinks. The waves were massive that day so we had a blast! I am sure this was much quieter than the main Coronado beach and all the same sand!

“Very quiet...easy access from the Loew's”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

We stayed at the Loew's and took several walks over to Silver Strand. There is under-street tunnel access. Not at all busy, clean...nice place to stroll, enjoy the sunset, take pictures

“Lots of parking and not many people!”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

This beach is between Coronado and Imperial Beach. There is ample parking (you have to pay using the honor code as there's no guard at the entry). You can also park right at the entry for quick sunset pictures! The beach is wide and like many on the CA coast, there's lots of kelp. Great sunset views, and if you're staying at the Loews Coronado, there's a walkway and tunnel that lead you to the beach. The restrooms are clean and there are outside showers for your use.

“First time for us”
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.
