Just walking a quarter mile from the parking lot and all the people are left behind, just a few surfers, anglers and beachcombers out there. It costs to use it, but then parking is difficult near the free beaches and one often ends up paying...More

Not crowded is not reason enough. The long, narrow strand is a magnet for litter washed up by the waves. Out of town guests described it as "certainly no big deal" which was the overall impression of Coronado. Head north to La Jolla, Torrey Pines,...More

Not many tourists have discovered this out of the way beach located across the road from the Loews Resort and Spa. You will love it. Clean unraked sand. Restrooms and no lifeguards!

Friendly and helpful check-in process. Beautiful sunsets. Best you can expect being right on the beach. Will have to do again.

Sand, sun and ocean waves sounds great but this unremarkable stretch of sand "blessed" with it's proximity to "Tijuana Floaters" is usually empty for a number of reasons not least of which is the almost constant posting of warnings to stay out of the water...More

Yes, as other reviewers have pointed out, it is a long strand of beach, but if you like a beach with some plant life or other distinguishing features, this is not it. The campground is next to a fairly busy highway that gets quiet around...More

Silver Strand is a beautiful stretch of beach. We walked on a lovely March evening and had very few companions on the beach. It was a great spot for a quiet, romantic walk on the beach. (Very easy access from Loew's Coronado Bay resort.)

Should I request a certain room before arriving??

Response from Patsy R | Reviewed this property |
It depends. If you bring pets then buildings 4/5. We were in building 1 and it was just right for us. It's close to the main lobby and pool(s). But so are the other buildings.
