Sand was fantastic, water was cold but we loved it. Beach was quiet and clean. Not crowded at all. Great place if you want to play in the sand, play in the waves or catch some sun. There is also a nice sidewalk/boardwalk that you can stroll.

Not to be missed. Gorgeous, wide and long beach with soft sand and nice surf. Very clean! Drive around and you will find parking. Great to walk , sit, or play on. We had a fabulous long walk , then sat at the pool at hotel del for cocktails. PERFECT and memorable afternoon! Just do it!

We took the ferry over to Coronado for a day at the beach but were disappointed overall. The whole San Diego area had rain for a couple of days and the water at the beach had high levels of contanimation, so the lifeguards were advising against going into the water. The water was not clear at all, so we stayed... More

One of the best in the nation! The Hotel del Coronado is not to be missed - inside & out. Walk along Ocean Boulevard to see some beautiful old homes. Actually walk all through the town to see charming vintage homes.

Parking might be an issue if you don't get here early enough, but that's pretty much normal at any beach. Rolling coolers may be a pain since they don't roll well on sand. The water is clear and the sand is soft. Not a lot of rocks, so it's perfect for walking barefoot. If you're close to the Coronado hotel,... More

As beautiful a beach as you will ever see. Soft white sand, cool ocean breezes. It's an experience made even better by the various places to visit in the Hotel del.

Maybe I am used to the fun atmosphere at Texas beaches, but this beach seemed dull. Has a beautiful appearance, but cant do much. Water was freezing, cant drink, play music or fly kites. BORING!! good for old people

One of the best beaches in the U.S. It wasn't overly crowded, it was very very clean, the sand is beautiful and so is the water. Great experience.

This is a beautiful deep sandy beach. Runs from dog park down by the Naval base all the way down to Hotel Del Coronado. Life guards are positioned all along the beach. At low tide, the beach becomes even deeper. Gentle waves most the time but will have days when rip currents are a problem. Very busy on weekends as... More

It's a beautiful beach with great neighborhood, however I don't consider it's an excellent beach to visit and a must see, because the water is cold and nothing more to do.
