My toddler didn't want to leave!

We came by to do a stroller run on the nearby bike path but first had to stop by the beach! My 2-year-old loved playing in the soft sand and really didn't want to leave! So it... read more

We visited here based on reviews indicating best place for sea shells. It did not disappoint. Beautiful beach with breathtaking views. You do have to pay to enter for a day pass as it is a state park. Kids spent hours building sand castles and basking in the California weather. Apparently this is so close to Mexico that our wireless... More

This RV park is merely a paved parking lot with water/electric hookups. There is a man-made sea wall between the RV park and the ocean. If you climb to the top of this sand partition, you can see the ocean. You cannot see the ocean from any site unless you climb on top of your camper. The park is right... More

Took a windy walk on Christmas day. Surprised by all the trash on the beach. Wouldn't have wanted to spread out a blanket and spend much time there. Also, there were signs posted that the water quality wasn't good and it wasn't safe to swim.

I will start off with this park is beautiful. We live in San Diego and booked this place at the last minute due to someone's cancellation. I will add that it was New Years so we did expect some late night noise. We went on Friday and New Year's Eve was Saturday night. It rained that night so that kept... More

The beach is beautiful and the wedding went off without a hitch. During the rehearsal we saw dolphins in the ocean off the beach.

I no longer live in Southern CA but I did grow up here so I have been to all of the beaches. They all have their own personalities and micro-cultures but the sand and waves are much the same. Silver Strand has fewer people which is nice but that is largely because it costs $$$ to use it. Is it... More
