Overview

A mere two-mile drive from cosmopolitan, downtown San Diego, across one of the world's most distinctive bridges, is Coronado Island - a world away. Developed in 1888 as a beach resort town, and home to the famous Hotel del Coronado, the island is blessed with one of the finest beaches in the world and bathed in endless sunshine. Coronado today is a vibrant beach community loaded with charm.

We made visiting this lovely island a full day. The sand was soft and sparkled between my toes. We ate gelato, rented boards and just relaxed in the rented chairs and umbrella. The island is great for families, couples and singles! If you're visiting Chula...More

We love the beauty of this island, the restaurants, beaches and friendly people. It is busy in the summer, but not as crazy as Mission Beach. Lots of great places to sit outside and watch people walk by. It is a clean island as well.

If you visit San Diego, you must go to Coronodo Island. Ride the ferry and rent a bike. Shop, go to the beach, eat and make a full day out of it. The memory will stay with you for life.

Take a drive around and park you car and just walk around the views are fantastic. Take a walk by the beach and just be a kid again. Romantic walk and watch the most beautiful sunsets in the world.

Spent 4 days on Coronado. Love the atmosphere around Orange Av and the Beach. Great surf and swim and wide beach with lots of room to play. Great selection of local shops and restaurants. Check out the Surf Shop “Emerald City”.

This area is very pedestrian friendly with beautiful trees blooming all over. There are many tourist shops and a wide variety of restaurants to choose from if food in the $$$$ range is not your style. Easy atmosphere, friendly, fun.

First stop at Hotel del Coronado, then hit the shops along Orange Ave. great options that support local businesses. Parking was surprisingly easy along the street on a Saturday. Don’t miss the wide clean beach. Also great art, theater, and dining options

Like most of the other responders, I didn't see any golf carts, but one responder said he knew of a source.
