If you want to get away from the crowds in Coronado I suggest coming here. It’s a state beach so you’ll have to pay admission but it’s usually less crowded and more relaxed.

In my mind, the only bad about Silver Strand is the $$$ you pay to use it. I suppose the lack of nearby eateries could be a negative for some, but you can decide on that. On the up side, there is plenty of parking,...More

A few locals surfing. The beach has a lifeguard. We paid $10 to go in the area and the bathrooms were not even accessible. Glad to leave the $10 donation since they did have a lifeguard. In general, not even average in my opinion. Not...More

It's fine as a motor home park (if you don't need hookups!). There's a bayside and an ocean side. The bayside is completely overgrown with weeds all over the volleyball courts and picnic tables. It's a state park and apparently the state doesn't want to...More

But a years pass for the park, and put it to use! You won't be sorry. Pass good for all the state beaches up the coast!.

Great Place for a crowd of people, clean beach with amenities close by. Just be aware that the cost to park is $10.00. Its is worth the price for a clean beach with fire pits.

It depends. If you bring pets then buildings 4/5. We were in building 1 and it was just right for us. It's close to the main lobby and pool(s). But so are the other buildings.
