Founded in the 1880’s, Coronado is a resort city located in San Diego county, California, just across the San Diego Bay from downtown San Diego.
With gentle surf, sparkling wide-sand beaches, charming main street and the famous Hotel del Coronado, this island paradise is perfect. Some of the world’s most desirable beaches can be found in Coronado. Dr. Beach ranked Coronado’s Central Beach as the #1 Beach in the United States in 2012. Parents Magazine also named Coronado in it’s top 10 U.S. beaches. There are four main beaches — Central Beach, South Beach, Silver Strand State Beach and North Beach. These beaches connect into miles of sand and ocean.
Coronado’s coastline offers wide sandy beaches with sparkling sand, courtesy of the mineral Mica. With its elegant gardens, old-world mansions, quaint shops, and oceanfront dining with spectacular sunset views, no wonder this charming small town has been dubbed “The Crown City,” as Coronado means “the crowned one” in Spanish.
