SAN DIEGO CORONADO ISLAND - SAN DIEGO

Coronado Island San DiegoCoronado Island – Coronado is a quick 15-minute commute from the airport across the Coronado Bay Bridge. A more relaxing ride is aboard the ferry. Hop on at the Broadway Pier in downtown San Diego and cruise across the harbor. Sit back and enjoy the splendid views of North Island Naval Station, Coronado Bay Bridge, and the city skyline.

Coronado means the “Crowned One” and the Hotel Del Coronado is undoubtedly the queen of the island. USA Today called it “one of the top ten resorts in the world” and it lives up to its reputation. The Del should be at the top of the list of must-sees. If nothing else, just stand back and spend a moment marvelling its architectural beauty.

Coronado beaches are uncrowded and unspoiled and are a great place to relax and take in the views. Travel Channel voted Coronado Beach the second best beach in America and the #1 family beach. Children will also enjoy Tidelands Park. It offers playgrounds, a skateboard park, and ball fields.

However, beaches are only part of Coronado’s Attraction. The city has museums, shops and boutiques, theatres, a golf course, and concerts to entertain visitors year-round.

A fun and easy way to see Coronado is to take a walking tour. It’s an easy 90-minute stroll through Coronado’s past and present. Or if you prefer, take a bike ride. There are 15 miles of pathways along the beach that offer spectacular views for bicyclists, rollerbladers, and walkers. For something more romantic take a gondola ride through the canals and waterways of the Coronado Cays.

Whatever you decide to do in Coronado, it will be unforgettable. And soon you’ll find yourself wishing you could stay just one more day.
