Coronado Municipal Beach, set in the Coronado Island off San Diego, is a must-visit destination. Who would not want to step in to those silky smooth sands along the shores? Who would not love the clean cold waves wetting their senses? Who would not love a mountain view set in the beach? Who would not love those migrant birds relaxing... More

I haven't been to many beaches, but this seemed clean and everyone was friendly. We left our things at the beachside for over an hour and nobody even settled down near it. Beautiful view, clean-ish water, and lots of friendly people!

I liked that it was a free beach along the ocean. It had a reasonable number of people but not too crowded. The waves were fun to play in, but I didn't like that your bathing suit got brown sand in it from doing so.

Clean, friendly, a bit full but not overly crowded, gentle waves and clean sand. Nice for an afternoon escape.

Lovely beach! Crowded on a summer day, but not overly so. Lifeguards and easy sure for boogie boarding and kids. The Del has places to grab a bite, ice cream or a casual place get a cocktail and a snack.

The sand was soft and the waves beautiful and foamy. Easy access and the people were very laid back and relaxed. Nothing to dislike.

Not crowded and within walking distance from hotels and shops. It's a trek to restrooms, however. Dunes spell "Coronado" if viewed from the air. Lots of interesting planes fly by. Water is great: some waves, but not overpowering.

This is a nice beach, although much of the sand is obviously pumped in to combat erosion. It's a short walk from the island's business area.

I have to be honest, I'm a local and rarely come down here, but I must say this beach is one of the nicer ones to have photos at. It reminds me of Hawaii and I am not sure why

Great beach for the family not over crowded but plenty of people. A treat to watch the navy jets fly overhead and the navy seals running along the beach.
