Silver Strand State Beach officially reopened on Tuesday, May 5, according to local state beach officials.

A few of San Diego County’s state beaches reopened earlier this week with restrictions, including Carlsbad, South Carlsbad and Torrey Pines, per the California Department of Parks and Recreation.

A sign posted near the beach states the hours will be from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. and will be open to walking, running, swimming, surfing, paddling and kayaking but not for sun bathing, picnics, group gatherings, loitering, restrooms or surf fishing. Social distancing and face coverings are required.

As parking lots are still closed per state requirements, the City will place no-parking signs along Coronado Cays Boulevard near the entrance to the Cays to discourage people from driving to the state beach. Access should be open to those who live in the area.

The City reopened its beach and ocean waters in a similar manner on Monday, April 27.
