  • A rich place to spend hours with the beautiful view. Very rich walk, drink and enjoy the landscape.

  • The views are different, but the atmosphere reminds one of those places like Capri or St. Tropez, with a quiet elegance, despite the multitude of people. To see

  • A couple not far from San Diego lovely, peaceful place with beautiful villas. We can do all Orange Boulevard, a main thoroughfare that crosses the island, or better the adjacent streets or a walk along the Bay. You must also visit the famous hotel along the beach, where it is possible to freely access some parts inside and outside. Go to the island by ferry in 10 minutes approximately from the town of San Diego down adds pleasure and simplicity.

  • Had a great day hanging out on the island. Lots of great restaurants, the beaches are nice and Del Coronado is beautiful. Would love to go back and take small boat sailing lessons on the beach by the campgrounds. We shopped at the navy exchange and made reservations at the lodge on the beach for our next visit.
  • Great beaches with amazingly low entrance fees. Lots of amenities, friendly people everywhere. Nice area for rentable equipment that also includes an instructor. Inland beach invade you want something more calm than the ocean. If I am in the area again I will definitely visit again.
  • Relaxing real touristy place. Beautiful beach and a nice sit a on the boardwalk with a view over the ocean in front of a grand hotel.
  • Park your car and browse the shops downtown. Lots of good dinning and it's clean.
  • We visited Coronado Island while staying in San Diego in May. I like Coronado Island for its quiet, laid-back simplicity and for its beautiful views of the downtown San Diego skyline. It's the white, sandy beaches that have earned it numerous ratings as one of top ten beaches in the U.S. The grounds of the Hotel are beautiful, and we were able to see its private villas on the beach. Also, the residential beach homes of the island were nice to look at. There is a contrast of Victorian and Contemporary styles. It was one of the most relaxing places I have ever been! Paradise!
