Owner description: 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.

This is a small community inside of the San Diego area, and is a nice side trip if you have time to explore the area. It is a small beach community with some interesting shops and has a lot of history in this area. On a side note this area gets very BUSY on the weekends and the island often gets congested as there is only ONE way in and off the island.

Warm in the winter and not too busy, the beach is close to many wonderful restaurants and hotels, well within walking distance.

My wife and I plus some relatives took a trip to Coronado to visit the famous hotel and to see the Island. First, the beach is a thing of beauty with great white sands. We enjoyed taking a tour of the hotel and walking around the Island. The flowers and gardens are beautiful.

The perfect way to spend a few hours and take in the beautify.

Nice little drive along the Scenic Route from La Jolla to Coronado. Can be done with time for sight seeing and a stop for lunch in under 4 hours.

What a beautiful and clean place. Perfect little homes and the parks are beautiful with free music concerns.

The people are polite and friendly. It feels like a small town with the ability to walk most everywhere. There is a trolley that will take you from one point of the peninsula to the other.
