Overview

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.

This is a place to retire!! Lovely chill little slice of heaven just across the bridge from San Diego. We stayed on the island and loved every minute of it. This is a must destination.

Loved Coronado and San Diego. Stayed at the Del, now owned by Hilton, was reasonable using some of my Hilton Points. Service was great. People of all ages, lots of families, very casual. Never eat at The Del, it is outrageously expensive, but right across...More

The beach is wonderful with easy access to the water and plenty of free parking! The Life Guards are on duty and working to keep the area safe and enjoyable for everyone.

This is a great place to drive around and view the lovely houses. While you are there you must see the old hotel.
