  • Place like this makes you feel the world is so gorgeous! Coronado is one of the magnificent and serene beauty! One can easily spend hours by just enjoying the view. One can also see the Mexico Border across the sea. Peek into the vintage, well preserved lighthouse is one of the tangible perks of visiting this place.
  • Coronado Beach is beautiful. The sand is soft and powdery, and the water clear and blue. The beach is wide and long so there is plenty of room. I visited in January so it wasn’t crowded, although the water was a bit too cold to swim in. It was so pretty around sunset - very serene and romantic.
  • Love love love this place. Clean beach, tons of shells, life guards in duty. Parking is on the street but if you get there early it's easy peasy. Beautiful sites. The water was chilly but plenty of people enjoying it. Plenty of food and shops nearby to walk to. I'll definitely be back ❤
  • My favorite beach in the San Diego area! The people are nice too. Never had a problem here...
  • One of the best beaches around San Diego area. Nearby resorts and hotels make this beach exclusive. It’s clean, well equipped, and supported by resorts’ amenities available to general public, which is nice.
