About Coronado, CA
Just a drive from Downtown San Diego, across one of the nation’s most distinctive bridges, is Coronado Island. Voted one of the finest beaches in the world, year round sunshine and rich history, Coronado is an exciting beach community.
Coronado's flat white sand beach has family-friendly surf and postcard sunsets framed by the picturesque silhouette of the Point Loma headland. Coronado Beach is consistently rated one of the best beaches in the world. In addition to the beaches, there is the bayside district with breathtaking views of the San Diego skyline and bustling water sport activity.
More than 2 million visitors come to Coronado annually, hosted by 17 hotels, including three world-class resorts, and over 70 restaurants. A stunning 18-hole golf course, high end boutiques, art galleries, day spas, yacht marinas, and endless recreational opportunities complete the resort lifestyle. From local day trippers to international tourists, people of all ages are drawn to enjoy everything Coronado has to offer.
The crowning glory of the island is the Hotel del Coronado, the Victorian beach-front masterpiece that is rated the #1 Hotel in the U.S. by Celebrated Living. "The Del," as the legendary resort is affectionately known, is a National Historic Landmark and is as impressive now as when the seaside resort was built in 1888. Coronado is a town that celebrates its rich heritage and preserves its unique historical culture.
With its one-mile-long main street, Orange Avenue, Coronado is a quaint all-American village of 25,000 residents, complete with mom-and-pop shops, parades, and picnics in the park. In 2000, Coronado was awarded the Great American MainStreet award and was recently named one of the National Trust for Historic Preservation's Dozen Distinctive Destinations. Explore Coronado's friendly neighborhoods with quiet tree-lined streets and alleys and you'll discover an eclectic mix of architectural styles from historically preserved Victorians to Spanish villas to cozy beach cottages. And if it's a Thursday, you might find treasures at the many local garage sales.
