    The Silver Strand is an isthmus 7 miles long, connecting Coronado "Island" with Imperial Beach. Silver Strand State Beach, which encompasses both the San Diego Bay and Pacific Ocean sides of the strand, offering more solitude for those who wish to get away from the beach crowds. The ocean side of the strand features 2.5 miles of coastline trimmed with silver shells (thus named Silver Strand).

    Coronado is a peninsula connected to the mainland by a 10 mile narrow strip of land called the Silver Strand Local residents often refer to Coronado as The Island and they denote the core living and business area as The Village.

    Originally Coronado was separated from North Island by a shallow channel called the Spanish Bight. The development of North Island by the United States Navy prior to World War II led to the filling of the Bight, combining the land areas into a single body.

    In 1969, the state of California completed highwar SR-75 across the San Diego-Coronado Bridge allowing much faster travel between the cities than bay ferries or driving along the Silver Strand.
