We went to use the Day use area, and saw what a nice area they had for RV's. It's a long great beach with life Guards. We went across the to the bay side and rented Kayaks at te he Crown Cove Aquatic Center

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

This stretch of beach is perfect! Great for a long stroll down the beach and perfect for some fun in the water with the family.

We biked and skateboarded around the campground, went under the road to the bay / aquatic rec center. My kids were really into Pokemon Go and... More

There isn't very much to do at Silver Strand State Beach. My sister and I spent a lot of time here, however, since we had nothing going on during the day. We walked about 2 miles south down the beach. There are lots of interesting shells and sand dollars to be found here. Over all, I wouldn't say it's a... More
