The picture shown here from TripAdvisor is on the east side of Coronado. We rode our bikes from the RV park at Silver Strand State Beach to this side of town. The bike path runs along the water with some outstanding views of San Diego....More

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.

Camping here is an interesting experience, all on a big, asphalt slab, close to others. But the long, white-sand beach is such perfection, you will just spend your time there! I've stayed here numerous times, and again and again I've been helped by Esperanza. She...More

We loved visiting this beach! There were just few people there, it was like having an entire beach all to ourselves- it is very long and clean, peaceful, with beautiful waves. Made some super photos, too.

I spent a couple of hours here one afternoon when I had some free time, and was very pleased to see how clean and well maintained it was. There's a large area for campers, and plenty of room for picnics or just lunging on the...More

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.
