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.

It is hard finding a parking place on Coronado Island. Read signs carefully. Very beautiful area, easy access to the beach and lots going on. Enjoyed strolling the street and doing some window shopping, there are cafes and little restaurants. Overall an enjoyable afternoon.

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
