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.

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.

Many have already written on this beach so believe what has been already stated just make sure you bring your sunglasses - the most amazing white sand we've ever seen. At your service D&T.

We love how quiet this beach is. The sand is soft and clean, the water has great waves and it has easy parking. The snack stand is reasonably priced and has basic food options.

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.
