Silver Strand State Beach in Coronado, California
Silver Strand State Beach gives day-use visitors and campers access to great beaches on both sides of the Coronado Island Peninsula.
The ocean beach at Silver Strand State Beach offers sun and sand – lots of it. This is a superb place for long beach walks. Unfortunately the campground is nothing more than a paved parking lot for RV’s so tent camping is not allowed.
Crown Cove Beach across the highway on San Diego Bay comes with an aquatic center, kayak and boat rentals, and calm waters for safe swimming.
Since Silver Strand State Beach is so close to San Diego, it is a popular place on sunny days, but because of the size it is easy to get away from crowded areas. North of the park there is military property so heed any signs you encounter. South of the park entrance there is a 1.5 mile long protected habitat called Silver Strand Natural Preserve where it’s great to walk barefoot at the water’s edge.
The state park boundaries are just north of the campground and just south of the park entrance. On the other side of these fences are US military properties that are closed to the public.
