Coronado Island beaches are known for their sugar sand, casting a brilliant sparkle from the mineral Mica. Coronado is located directly across the bay and approximately one mile from downtown San Diego.

Continually recognized for its expansive white beaches, Coronado has been voted the number one family beach by the Travel Channel and the number two beach in America.

Wide and expansive, Coronado is known as the “island” by the locals. It really isn’t an island but instead is connected to the mainland by a piece of land called the silver strand. The Coronado-San Diego Bridge also links this area to the city. Coronado means “crowned one” in Spanish so their city is known as Crown City.

This small town is a friendly and features wide leafy streets lined with Victorian homes and beach bungalows. Silver Strand State Beach connects Coronado to the mainland and includes overnight camping, fire rings on the beach public rest rooms and large public parking areas.

Whales may be seen December through February as they make their annual journey south to Mexico. The extreme north beach, Dog Beach, allows canines to hit the surf without the encumbrance of leashes.

On the bayside, Tidelands Park of Coronado hosts a skateboard park, ball fields, kid’s playgrounds, fitness course and picnic tables. Glorieta Bay is for the nautical enthusiast. You can rent sailboats, paddleboats, jet skis or book a deep sea fishing adventure.
