Nice beach with a very large amount of white clean and sandy beach. Not too crowded early on the morning we visited but it probably gets a little busy in the summer on weekends. Very nice beach preceeded by a nice drive over the bridge.

Always relaxing, safe for entire family even at night...Close to all San Diego activities. Weather is warm during day/cool at night. Great Coronado camp for kids ages 5-14.

I took a stroll across this large beach at the beginning of April so it wasn't warm enough for the water but still very nice. The sand DOES sparkle, many reviewers have said that and it's true. The sand was soft and the beach is...More

By local accounts, this was an early warm up but so very much appreciated by this northerner! No plastic or crap visibly seen on beach. The water is still cold in April. The sunset was beautiful too!

The views are stunning! We rented two beach chairs and an umbrella and relaxed by the water. We walked along the beach every day. They have done an amazing job building up the beach walk. It’s about 2 miles to the end by the Naval...More
