Overview

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.

Visited here and really liked it. I was actually surprised at the amount of sand dollars we found on the island. What else is great is the gold/glitter in the beach sand. It's just amazing.

The entire island is beautiful. From the million dollar homes, to the Hotel Del and the beaches. It can get crowded with traffic and people, but don’t let that detour you from its beauty.

We have never enjoyed a vacation more. The receptionist all went out of their way to make sure we had all that we needed. The bikes were great. Don’t want to go anywhere else.

The beach here was clean, beautiful, and uncrowded (in February). Bike rental in the town area was not expensive, but didn't open until 10 a.m. The bike path down the length of the island was flat and very nice, although there were lots of bike...More

Coronado Island is a beautiful place! Although I am a little biased because I got married there! The beaches are extremely clean and there is no riff-raff. We got married in front of the Hotel Del Coronado, which is absolutely breathtaking. We arrived around 6:00...More

Excellent views, food and relaxation! Walked the beach. Caught a glimpse of a seal swimming. Watched a navy ship dock. Had a wonderful time while there.

A couple hours would be fine to get a good idea. Rent a bike and you will be around quickly.
