The second day of the Fourth of July holiday weekend was even busier than the first on San Diego beaches.

City lifeguards estimated that 185,800 beachgoers flocked to the shores on Sunday, according to San Diego Fire Rescue Department spokesman Lee Swanson.

The estimated crowd on Saturday was 155,000.

Lifeguards made 211 rescues throughout the day Sunday and 228 on Saturday, according to Swanson.

Crowds were expected to increase Monday, according to lifeguards.

Those figures are only for beaches in the City of San Diego, and do not include other beaches along the San Diego County coastline.
