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.

Coronado Island is a nice ferry trip across from San Diego. There are many shops, restaurants, and of course the Del Coronado hotel is a must see. Definitely a nice day trip if you're visiting San Diego

I loved the small town feeling of Coronado Island. You can walk easily almost anywhere, including the ferry to slip over to San Diego. Fabulous food options abound!

Great place to visit. The views when coming over the bridge are amazing. The beach is kept really clean and is great for a walk along or to watch sunset. A must when in San Diego.

A couple hours would be fine to get a good idea. Rent a bike and you will be around quickly.
