Spend a Day at Silver Strand State Beach

Added by Laura Hill

After driving across the 200-foot tall Coronado Bridge, you arrive at the charming and picturesque oceanfront community of Coronado.

A day at the Silver Strand State Beach is a must, playing in the surf and searching for seashells.

Parking can be challenging, as all beaches on Coronado Island are very busy.  I recommend coming early in the morning and planning to stay all day. 

Lots of food options are close to every beach, as well as restrooms.

For more information, visit the San Diego website.

Nice Beach

This is a nice beach on Coronado Island. Parking is difficult but I was lucky and was staying with someone who lived on the island so I could just walk to the beach.
