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.

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.

We visited the beach while staying at the Loews resort and was underwhelmed. The sand goes glisten under the sun when the sand is wet and there is a public snack shack but otherwise it didn't seem too great. There are a lot of RVs...More

If you need to park your motor-home, make reservations as it gets very crowded on summer week-ends. There are restrooms and lifeguards. Do not expect a view as depicted with the Coronado Bay bridge nearby, it was not taken from Silver Strand.

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.
