This is "asphalt camping" at it's best! Silver Strand is really nothing more than a parking lot on the beach, but if you are lucky enough to get the front row (at $50.00 a night) you walk out your door and on to the sand....More

If you are looking to sit and enjoy the beach, go to a different location. This beach is not groomed and therefore has a lot of seaweed and with it, flies.
