We've been to Coronado Beach twice and both times, we had great experiences. It's a huge beach with plenty of space to go for long walks. The waves are huge towards the end of the day, which makes for some great bodysurfing! The sunsets are just beautiful, so don't leave too early and miss out! If you have time, you... More

The beaches in this area are the most foul in San Diego and in my opinion in all of California! The parking can be a little difficult in the summer but it's worth a walk.

The best part about this beach is the very western most stretch of it. Just before the restricted area of the naval base you will find a dog beach where your pet can run without leash and romp in the water. It is clean and delightful to walk with the happy animals and enjoy their play. Free parking is a... More

More than likely anyone looking to come to Coronado for the first time has done a bit of on-line research or heard from friends who have been here before. Common knowledge is the fact that the sand dunes immediately north of the Hotel Del spell out "CORONADO." Ariel photos really make it clear, but even glimpsing the dunes from the... More

Long stretch of fine sand beach that goes on forever. Easy parking and access. Best place to view the sunset with nearby restaurants, the grand dame of Hotel Del Coronado in the back drop. Very romantic. Fairly clean for a public beach. Fun for all ages. All this for FREE!

This is the widest beach I've ever experienced! And it is well groomed and resonably clean considering its vast width and length. The surf was fine for beginner surfers and the skies were entertaining with helicopters passing by.

White sand, broad vistas, and plenty of sun n surf will greet dudes and dudettes of all ages. Bring your own umbrella for shade.

This beach, and the island were our favorite spots on our trip to San Diego. The beach was stunning, and stretches so far! The only downside was that there was an injured seal on the beach that was roped off. It had apparently been there for 2 days, and noone had done anything to help it. We ran into a... More

Excellent beach for everybody, bathrooms and showers available. You can park without cost, you have to be patient enough when looking for a parking spot. Bring something to seat or rest, and maybe also a shade. Very clean, very nice. Loved it !!
