With the Hotel Del Coronado in the background, it's a beautiful place for couples, families with small children, and it even has a dog friendly beach at one end. Not the best place for surfing and there are much better places to body surf or boogie board up the coast. If you just want sand and water, with plenty of... More

I went boogie boarding here and Was slammed onto the bottom resulting in a trip to the clinic on the other side of the island 5 min. Away. X-rayed and bandaged up all before work on north island. It was a great day.

Parking can be a bit of an issue as the place... More

Recently in notable publication this was voted as one of the top ten beaches in the continental US. The beach is wide and the sand is so soft about the only place you can comfortably walk is near the waters edge. A good starting spot is Hotel del Coronado and head north from there. There are some scenic dunes near... More

First off, parking can be a major pain, if one goes there on the weekend. The beach is clean and big in size. This beach has less rowdy crowds than Mission and Pacific Beaches. Military Planes flying over the water was spectacular!!!!

Lovely place to go for a swim, not so far from the downtown of San Diego.The beach is located next to Coronado Hotel, which is also worth a peak. In any case, the beach is free access, and the water is relatively warm (it was in August when I was there)

Coronado Beach is really great for kids with families. It's very sandy with an easy entrance and no rocks. The waves were gentle allowing for easy swimming for swimmers of all ages.
