Coronado Beaches

Coronado Island lies south of San Diego and about 25 minutes from La Jolla. It’s one of the most family-friendly areas in San Diego and its wide, sandy beaches literally sparkle thanks to the mineral mica in its golden sand. There are multiple beaches here; though there are some parks with a small sandy area in front, there are five main accessible beaches in Coronado. All of them are equipped with convenient amenities, and none are too far from the local shops, restaurants, and other things to do in Coronado.

Ferry Landing

If you want a beach with a great view of the San Diego Bay and Downtown San Diego, then the Ferry Landing beach is just the right place! Ferry landing is a small beach accompanied by a grass lawn, which makes it perfect for a picnic with loved ones.

Glorietta Bay Beach

Glorietta Bay Beach is part of Glorietta Park, which sits on a protected area of coast just above Silver Strand. Because the beach is situated in a cove, the waves are kid-friendly, and parents don't have to worry about a strong current. Glorietta Park offers space for outdoor picnics at the many tables situated with a great view of the famous Coronado Bridge.

Coronado Central Beach

Coronado's most popular beach is easily accessible and full of glistening white sand. The Hotel Del Coronado is what draws people in, and the flat, wide beach is what makes them stay! This beach is perfect for swimming, sunbathing, and other beach activities. Come to Coronado Central Beach during low tide, and you'll see the sunken ship that has since turned into tidepools or sit beside the firepits in the evening as the sun goes down.

Silver Strand Beach

Silver Strand beach is known for being one of the most popular spots for visiting families. However, during peak hours access is only granted with a day-pass. RV campers are also welcome at the campground and are given access to necessary amenities. Come check this beach out if you want to avoid most of the Coronado excitement!
