Walking around Coronado, we stopped and just chilled at the beach. It was a very peaceful stop. Because we were able to park and just wander around. Great Zen spot.

The beaches of Coronado are amazing. Beautiful sand, gorgeous water, great paths for walking. The whole area is well kept and well maintained. It feels safe. There are life guard stations well staffed during the day.

End of November cool day, but so much fun! We could have sat in the beach all day watching helicopters and airplanes come and go! Nice sand, nice bathrooms! Beautiful sunset!

If you've come to SD, you must invest the time to get to Coronado. Beautiful beach with incredible views of the sea and Point Loma. Stroll down to the Hotel Del Coronado and grab a drink. Look at all the beautiful houses along Ocean Boulevard.
