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.

We love Coronado Island! It's a great place to stay when visiting SO Cal, a small town next to the big city. People are friendly and it's easy to get-around.

The beaches in Coronado Island are gorgeous! I'm so glad we took the time to cross the bridge. It took us a while to find a parking space by the beach but we drove a little away from tge crowd and found the perfect spot.

Took the ferry over to the island and walked down the Main Street and around the yacht club and the beach. Lots of things to see and do and a great spot to ride a bike around.

We took a bike ride from San Diego to Coronado. Of course you must take the ferry to get from SD to Coronado because the bikes are not allowed on the Coronado Bridge. On the Island there are some nice beaches, big sunny green parks,...More

Plenty of beaches to walk and a very long concrete walkway to enjoy ocean front and take in the ocean. Navy seals can be seen off shore conducting exercises as well.

Fun place if you can find parking and it's free! :) I loved the beaches and the small shops all around. You could walk for hours! It's worth the trip!

There are a number of ways to get to the island but in looking at your location, you can take a ferry and rent a bike to explore the island as we did. Inexpensive and timely along with a bike friendly island make it a good... More

Yes but be prepared for a cool evening.
We are staying at hotel circle in San Diego ca for July 3rd and 4th, 2016 and would like to take in the best fireworks while avoiding the crowds; can you recommend either outside dining rooftop (we do have 2 teens 15 & 17) where we can dine while viewing the fireworks & could make reservations for 4 or sailboat/dinner cruise; again we can pay a little for view and less crowds!! We'd hate to be squishe on a rooftop noisy bar or on boat cruise as well!
