In San Diego it's known as the Silver Strand, a coastal bike path between San Diego Bay & the Pacific Ocean. It's a sliver of sandbar that connect Imperial Beach to Coronado Island, which I guess isn't an island after all, it's a peninsula! There is rumored to be a sunk ship that you can see during extremely low tides. The campground is right on the beach and popular among the RV crowd. The Hotel del Coronado is just down the street, downtown San Diego is close by & the laid back beach community of IB is a few miles south, bordering Tijuana Mexico. This is only real beach camping in San Diego downtown area, so camping reservations are highly recommended for Silver Strand Campground.
