A mere two-mile drive from cosmopolitan, downtown San Diego, across one of the world's most distinctive bridges, is Coronado Island - a world away. Developed in 1888 as a beach resort town, and home to the famous Hotel del Coronado, the island is blessed with one of the finest beaches in the world and bathed in endless sunshine. Coronado today is a vibrant beach community loaded with charm.

Love either renting chairs or just a towel on the beach. Long walks were also great. Clean, cold water and loved every minute of it.

This is one of the best place in San Diego. Plan to visit this island when you visit here. The beach here has white sand and there is a trail by the side of del Coronado hotel which adds to the beauty of this place....More

Lovely little place with beaches, restaurants & shops. Short drive over the bridge from downtown San Diego. Visit the Hotel Del Coronado if you have time, it's beautiful & has an interesting history linked to movies & Christmas trees.
