Beaches on the Island in
Coronado California

When you cross the bridge over to Coronado California, you are transported onto an island oasis. The island itself looks like a resort destination. It is so quaint and alluring with the different architectural styles of the homes, the beaches, the shops and eateries, and of course the very famous Hotel del Coronado.

I highly recommend spending some time exploring this beautiful paradise if you are ever in the San Diego area. The beaches are very nice and clean with beautiful views. Mostly everything is within walking distance or you can rent a bike or segway to explore.

Beaches include:

  • Coronado Central Beach
  • Coronado Dog Beach
  • Silver Strand State Beach
  • Glorietta Bay Beach
  • Ferry Landing Marketplace

Click on each link, enter your desired destination and traveling dates. Also, its so important to read the reviews for each hotel you are interested in. Just because the picture might look nice, doesn't mean it is!
