About
A mere two-mile drive from cosmopolitan, downtown San Diego, across one of the world's most distinctive bridges, is Coronado Island - a world away. Developed in 1888 as a beach resort town, and home to the famous Hotel del Coronado, the island is blessed with one of the finest beaches in the world and bathed in endless sunshine. Coronado today is a vibrant beach community loaded with charm.

Worthwhile half a day in San Diego area
Sep 2021
On the north side by the Coronado Ferry, there is a great promenade facing downtown San Diego, plus a seaside strip mall. We rented a four-seater surrey for a leisurely ride along the promenade. Then, on the south side, the famous Hotel del Coronado. Walked along the wide beach and on surrounding streets that are full of eye-catching houses. Note: Parking was easy by the ferry and nearly impossible by the hotel.

Charming Relaxed Place

Coronado is a lovely relaxed place. The beaches are great and there are lots of little stores and restaurants. There are also lots of lovely beaches and great sand.

Enjoyed walking along the main drag, shopping, people and dog watching, enjoying the parks. Very nice places to stop and eat - casual.

Very, very relaxing

After 18 months of COVID sequestering, we needed a relaxing vacation, and a week on Coronado Island was just what the doctor ordered. Beautiful beach, very nice restaurants with plenty of variety, incredibly easy to get around without a car.

Special Ambiance

Park your car and take the free shuttle all across Coronado. While street parking is everywhere, unoccupied slots are difficult to come by.

The quaint, picturesque island is home to several blond-sand beaches, including at the fabled Del Coronado hotel, delightful boutiques, charming residential neighbourhoods, and massive military operations.

A ferry ride to the San Diego main land costs only $5! Make sure to visit the beach parks and ferry landing. Particularly at night the view of the San Diego skyline is brilliant.

Lovely place
Jul 2021
During our San Diego trip, we took Uber over to Coronado to visit Coronado island during July 4th weekend. The cost for Uber was about $15 one way from San Diego Bay. Coronado is great for beach with the popular Coronado hotel at the center. Many stores and restaurants to visit. Great stop if you're in the San Diego area.

Awesome sea side town with great beach and cool downtown area to stroll and shop
Jul 2021 • Friends
Went here on a weekday getaway with spouse. Great downtown area with cool shops, dining, etc. Great for strolling and checking out the town. Short distance is the beach. Highly recommend for staying there or day trip. Great for couples and families.

love this place
Jun 2021
We come to Coronado at least three times a year. We love being here. It is very casual and has a small town vibe even though it is just over the bridge from San Diego. The main street is Orange Ave and it has cute shops, lots of restaurants and a park. Orange Ave goes straight to the Hotel Del which has the best beach in front of it. The sand is super soft. We always use bikes from the hotel we stay at The Crown City Inn and ride all over the neighborhoods. It is just a fun and relaxful time.

Coronado Island is a very nice place. You get a ton of different varieties of foods and travel experiences. You are very close to delicious Mexican food at Miguels and delicious ice cream at Moo Time.
