Silver Strand State Beach, Coronado

3.7
Enjoy outdoor recreation along the Pacific Ocean and San Diego Bay at Silver Strand State Beach. Due to its prime location along the shoreline and the area's mild climate, this beach is an ideal location for camping, swimming, boating, volleyball games, and more. The park's bay side boasts panoramas of the San Diego Bay and offers water a bit warmer and calmer than along the ocean. Directly south of this developed spot lies a nature preserve, where you can take a stroll and keep an eye out for snails, sand dollars, and cockle shells.
