A mere two-mile drive from cosmopolitan, downtown San Diego, across one of the world's most distinctive bridges, is Coronado Island - a world away. Developed in 1888 as a beach resort town, and home to the famous Hotel del Coronado, the island is blessed with one of the finest beaches in the world and bathed in endless sunshine. Coronado today is a vibrant beach community loaded with charm.

While my husband was in meetings in San Diego, I took a bus over to Coronado Island. I always love to visit the Island while in the area. I had decided that on this visit, I'd like to rent a bike and do some exploring on my own. Did a bit of homework prior to leaving home, printed a map... More

Wanted to drive over Coronado Bridge just to say I did it and was glad I did. Found my way to the Naval Base and got close enough to see the large ships, spent some time on the beautiful Coronado Beach, and accidentally came across a beautiful spot called Bay View Park. Small park...beautiful big view of San Diego across... More

We stayed on Coronado last September. We absolutely loved the island. The beach is one of best we have ever seen. We stayed at the Glorietta Bay Inn. Highly recommend for the wonderful location. Tons to do in the San Diego area but stay on Coronado if possible.

We went as family day out. We went to public beach at Coronado. The beach is clean and white sand. You need to bring your own beach umbrella and towels and lots of sun cream. You need to bring your own drinks and food. The play to eat is not near to the beach. And you need to drive around... More

Coronado Island is my idea of Heaven on Earth. The balmy climate and laid back approach to life suits me to a tee. If I could afford it, I could retire to that area but house prices are extremely high as many people feel the same way. However it is lovely to be able to visit it and enjoy what... More

The little shops, the restaurants, the weather and the homes make Coronado an amazing place to visit or live...if you have the dough! We find the food to be wonderful, the weather to be enjoyable and the people to be laid back. We love to rent bicycles and ride all over town. There are some cute shops and neat little... More
