This beach is beautiful white sand (with flecks of gold.) There is always a breeze off the ocean and the surf is amazing. It's the perfect beach for walking, sunning, sanddollar searching and playing.

Amazing beach. Clean and plenty of room for everybody, and boy did it ever get busy sometimes! Check out the bonfires at night near the Hotel Del Coronado, and if you're lucky you'll see Navy SEALS training on the beach too.

Coronado beach is much quieter and more family oriented than any of the other beaches up the coast in San Diego. There are strict laws about alcohol, fires, and skateboards and it is kept very clean. There is no shortage of lifeguards patrolling an on duty. It's a short walk from one end to the other and we particularly enjoy... More

Coronado Beach was the perfect place to take my family. When you first arrive, the parking seems a bit daunting. But, patience pays off. There will be many spaces if you just scout out the area and look for those who may be leaving. The beach is very long and easily accessible. The beach is also patrolled by lifeguards and... More

Loved the beach as well as the area....The beach was quite spacious, lots of people but never felt over crowded. Beach was clean and liked that there were restroom facilities available at two different beach locations. Could have done without all the little dead fish that kept washing ashore though!!

The beach itself is very big with lots of space to spread out. The views are beautiful and there is an Air Force base right next to the beach. Fighter plains are constantly flying over very low and it is extremely loud. The sand is black near the water and it looks like there are gold flakes in it which... More

Spent part of an afternoon here with our cooler and towels camped on the beach in front of the Hotel del Coronado. Beautiful spot, but a LONG way to the only public restroom on the beach. Had lunch at the Del's Sun Deck restaurant. (Very tasty pulled pork sandwiches.) We actually liked this beach best in the evening. We'd toss... More

This was my first visit to Coronado Beach. I was very pleased with the cleanliness and availability of wash station. There were doggy poop stations for people who bring their dogs. Lifeguards were on duty and warned the boggie board surfers of a developing rip current. Over all everyone was nice and I felt comfortable being there. I definitely plan... More
