Enjoyed a quick drive from LaJolla to Coronado Beach on a Monday morning. Traffic was light and we found free parking very easily. Worth the trip as the beach is nice and the historic Coronado hotel is really cool. Town is good to walk around and shop or eat. One suggestion is to stay closer to the hotel as there... More

A great small beach town that you access over the Coronado Bay Bridge, with a little bit of traffic to get in and out of. The side streets are well kept with cute to beautiful homes. The beach is wide and with a lot of sand, lifeguards, and bathrooms. The waves are typically mild and great for all ages. Then... More

We have been coming to Coronado for 20 years and are never disappointed. The beach is awesome. If you go be sure to go hang out by life guard stand 3 which is in front of del. The other spot is lifeguard stand 4 which is down a bit. More locals there.

This beach is beautiful! The sidewalks, sand, and shoreline are very clean. It's family or couple friendly. Tons of shops and restaurants everywhere, so you can sit in the sun or poke around all day. Short uber ride or ferry ride from San Diego Convention Center.

Very clean ( when I was a kid growing up in this area it was a mess!), easily accessed via the Coronado Bridge, the water temperature was great. Parking can be a bit of a trick, but it's worth a bit of a walk.

I have never seen a beach this wide. And its very clean too. White sand turns kind of brown though at water's edge.

My family loves this beach. The sand is very soft. In the morning, it is a wonderful place to walk. It is very peaceful. The Hotel Del Coronado is located right behind it. So it is easy to get a cup of coffee then walk on the beach. In the afternoon it is a great place to picnic. Parking can... More

Visited here with my wife in July. She is used to the warm water in South Padre so the cool water here was not perfect for her. I on the other hand loved the cool temperature of the water and the breeze and under the sun it was perfect. While we were there a bunch of navy seal recruits stopped... More

Quite literally a stone's throw from the yacht club and The Del, is this clean sunny beach. It's spacious and family friendly with amenities close by. There were quite a few people swimming, but we didn't go into the water, but did spend about an hour enjoying the views, sun and relaxation.
