Coronado Island has a beautiful, clean beach that lies in the shadow of the majestic Hotel del Coronado. The views of the Hotel del make you feel like you are at a beach reserved for the rich and famous. How appropriate that the wet sand seems to have flecks of gold in it shimmering in the sunshine.

I was here with two friends and we are all in our late 20's yet felt like we were young kids again. We waved jumped for hours. This beach as some of the best waves that I have ever seen.

This beach is excellent for a morning walk, pictures and almost everything else. There were people taking surfing lesson too. It is very convenient for Hotel Coronado guests.

Parking can be challenging but it's worth it to experience the golden glittering sand of this beautiful beach. Water is clear and warm with a gentle slope (you'll have to get way out before the drop off...). Be prepared for a long walk to the water by packing efficiently and wearing flip flops to protect your feet from the hot... More

From the cliffs of the San Diego peninsula to the Navy ships coming out of the cove, this beach has some unique scenery. We were able to find free parking just across the street. The beach is very busy so you have to search for an open spot. The waves are pretty mild, so good for smaller kids. It was... More

This beach is one of my favorites because of it's proximity to the Hotel Del Coronado. It is a ways down the highway but a beautiful beach to see. You can also note the training ship for the Navy Seals and if lucky, get to see the men and women training by running on the beach! Nice eye candy!

We are from Indiana and our beach vacations are on the Atlantic or Gulf beaches. (mostly Florida). I was very,... More
