Coronado Island In San Diego

Coronado Island In San Diego

Everyone in California knows that the best beaches

in San Diego are on Coronado Island. Being linked to

downtown San Diego by the Island Bay Bridge, Coronado

is home to the SEALs training center and the Naval

Air Station Coronado. A military powerhouse, the

island of Coronado always has something going on.

One of the best features to Coronado is the world

famous Hotel Del Coronado. This Victorian style

seaside hotel was established in 1888, and was easily

one of the biggest and best hotels of that era. The

hotel was hosted in the past by the infamous Marilyn

Monroe and the Duke and Duchess of Windsor.

The Hotel Del Coronado has some of the best service

in California, along with breathtaking views of the

San Diego area. The restaurant here is one of the

best around, and even if you aren’t staying here, you

can enjoy a great meal. Each and every year, thousands

of people visit Coronado just to stay at this world

class hotel – yes, it’s that good.

The Ferry Landing is also a great addition to what

Coronado Island has to offer. The Ferry Landing

Marketplace offers you 30+ shops, restaurants, and

art galleries. You can walk around and check out

what the marketplace has to offer, or enjoy a

visit to the Tidelands Park.

There are great places to walk and bicycle here,

with awesome views of skyline San Diego. At sunset,

this is one of the best places to be. On Tuesdays, you

can find a farmers market here as well.

The Coronado Beach is located here as well, along the

Travel Channel. North of the beach there’s the Best

Weekend Getaway Beach. Even in the summer, the

Coronado Beach isn’t crowded, giving your family plenty

of room to enjoy the splendors of one of California’s

best beaches.

From the Glorietta Bay Inn in Coronado, you can take

a walking tour. Tours leave several times a week,

showing you everything the area has to offer. This is

a great way to learn more about the area. Or, if you

like, you can let someone else do the driving and

try a pedicab tour.

For the romantic, the Gondola Cruise helps to take the

pressure out of life. A romantic spin through the

canals of Coronado Cays can be quite the break from

the ordinary.

You can reach Coronado Island from San Diego by taking

the Coronado Bay Bridge exit off I-5. By water from

San Diego, you can take the Coronado Ferry that runs

hourly from 9 AM – 10 PM. Walking from the Ferry

Landing to Hotel Del Coronado is a little over a mile.
