Staying in Coronado also allows visitors to enjoy nearby San Diego attractions, such as the Zoo and Balboa Park, and then escape to an island-like oasis.
See & Do
One of the most family-friendly beaches in San Diego is right in front of the Hotel Del Coronado. The bay usually prevents big surf so kids can safely play at the water's edge. Gorgeous white sand is there to sink your toes into. Silver Strand State Beach is a mecca for camping, boating, swimming and other water sports.
Stroll along Orange Avenue for a variety of excellent dining options that you can pop into on a whim. The resorts also have critically acclaimed restaurants where reservations are encouraged. Try Mistral at Loews Coronado Bay for panoramic bay views and exquisite, family-friendly French cuisine.
The Hotel Del Coronado's location and amenities make it so you really don't have to leave the resort. Fine and casual dining, a pristine beach, shopping, spa and swimming pools are all onsite. This historic hotel is a popular destination for Presidents and Hollywood elite. Book in advance during summer months in order to avoid disappointment.
As a beach town, Coronado has plenty of San Diego or Coronado-labeled gear for those who forgot to pack a hat or think an umbrella might be helpful on the beach. Be Styled, on the other hand, is an upscale boutique focused on styling customers with high-end casual wear. Get your nails and lashes done there while you're at it, too.
