Great for kids, old and young alike. The sand is fine, which makes it nice for walking barefoot in. Weather you're playing volleyball, building sand castles or just walking along the shore collecting shells and sand dollars, there is something for everyone to enjoy in...More

This beach is fun for kids. Huge shoreline with beautiful sand. Kids can play in the tide pools and collect shells. The Del has bonfires st the beach every night.

Coronado Beach was amazing!!! Despite it being a little chilly, it was a great experience being there. Being able to walk along the beach and enjoy the ocean was perfect.

There was literally fold colored sand washing beneath our feet! We walked quite a bit and enjoyed an ice cream from the hotel del Coronado. They had dogs towards the end of the beach playing, it was very beautiful.

We brought the cloudy weather, but our girls still enjoyed playing on the beach - in their fleeces. We're from Michigan, so even at 60 degrees, and cloudy, it was beautiful weather for early April. The girls especially loved the 'gold glitter' in the sand...More

The beach was cold, the water colder. But there were a LOT of people there (on Spring Break) laying on the beach and even swimming in the water. It takes a LOT more heat for me to get in the water, but it was pretty...More
