A very clean public restroom (while open). The staff is helpful and it is also a souvenir store and museum access.

Right at the head of the beach and the Coronador Hotel, it's worth a stop to get your bearings and info to plan your time on the island. The folks inside really do a great job.

You definitely have to go through their mini museum of the history of Coronado. The lady at the front desk was so kind and a wealth of information as well. Loved seeing the old pictures and reading the history.

If you want to have a great visit to Coronado, you have to start here. The staff was so helpful in recommending things to do and places to eat. We could have stumbled around and had a good time, but I want to maximize our limited time here on the island. I would recommend taking 10 minutes to stop in,... More

This was the most ridiculous thing I have ever done in my life . It began with the tour guide speaking under a tree for literally 30 minutes about history that had nothing to do with the hotel. He started talking about Christopher Columbus. That tour was over 2 hours long and you see nothing. You can just go to... More
