Owner description: 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.

“Lots of eye candy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

Once you get through the traffic on Orange Avenue, enjoy long
promenades from end to end. We walked through many of the back lanes and saw interesting gardens and architecture. Ferry Landing has great views and restaurants.

“Nice Bike Ride”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

I took the ferry to the Island and rented a bike for 2 hours, it was enough to get to the Hotel Del Coronado and relax and ride back. Very pretty and relaxing. FYI, I'm not a fitness nut, but it was still a nice ride.

“Do not miss:)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

It's nice to visit this place on a Sunday where the traffic is slow and from the 5 freeway. A little tour to the famous Hotel del Coronado where you can take a little stroll in the sands or just enjoy the breeze and majestic view from the cafe. Then stop by at the shopping district and just enjoy people watching from the sidewalk or cafes. The locals are friendly and it's just one of those beautiful places in California where you feel happy you are there at the moment:)

Great short ferry ride to Coronado Island. Fun there even though it was raining. Lovely little boutiques, great deals. Glad we awlaked up to the beach even though it was cloudy.

“Wonderful, serene island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

It has a main street, orange ave where all the hustle bustle. The beach is beautiful. Quiet at night. Nice little place. Coronado Shores rental is excellent.
