Loved the Silver Strand State Beach, the actual beach is beautiful, the vibe laid back and relaxed. If I lived in San Diego I would be here a lot!

We went to Silver Strand Beach which is just south of Corondo. It was a very nice sunny day and people were having fun at the beach. We enjoyed our time there.

I went to this beach to boogie board and had a great time. The waves are perfect for boogie boarding and playing in. Easy access and parking, with bathrooms, shower, and changing room.
