  • This is my absolute favorite place on the West Coast of California. The beach is very clean and well taken care of, with beautiful silver sand and a great view. There is a great walkway along the beach. Avoid the hustle of the mainland beaches by visiting this island; You won’t regret it!
  • our favorite beach in San Diego for relaxing. it's one of tge cleanest beaches and there's never anything too crazy going on. perfect for quiet sunbathing
  • Very long expanse of beach front, with the Hotel de Coronardo overlooking. Always busy at the weekend, but a spectacular place to watch the sunset. Not lots of parking super close, or many facilities, but not too far from anywhere on the island. They pile up the seaweed in some places which can be a bit pungent but otherwise a lovely place to visit.
  • Great for family. December, the water seem to be in the colder side. None the less great beach and soft sand.
  • Beautiful beach silver sand no riff-raff . Ocean
