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.

The perfect beach community. Item number one. The historic Hotel Del Coronado. Item two one of the most beautiful white sand beaches in the US. It’s a public beach. The town itself has numerous restaurants, bars, stores and beautiful homes. It’s a true gem.

We hadn't planned to even go to Coronado, but the ferry was there, so we did it! It is a fun little place to grab a bite, do some shopping, or take a self-guided electric bike tour of the island, which I LOVED!!!!

I had seen so many great reviews about this area. It was nice, perhaps my expectations were too high. We were staying in San Diego and I wanted to the Hotel Del Coronado that everyone raved about. I found things to be overcrowded and busy....More

Visited San Diego in October during a heat wave, so Coronado Island was the place to go. An Uber driver took us over to the island in no time from Old Town. A great afternoon spent walking, on the beachwalk as well as at the...More

Nice to stroll around and visit the shops. Hotel is neat to look at. Cute shops a few blocks away. There are sand castle artists nearby.

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

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
