Coronado Vacation Travel Information

Coronado Beach in Coronado, California

Coronado Beach, aka Central Beach, starts at the famous Hotel del Coronado and continues north to Sunset Park. At the north end of the beach in front of Sunset Park dog owners bring their pets to roam freely in an area dubbed Dog Run Beach. Access to the main Coronado Beach is from the area near the “Hotel Del” where there are free parking spaces all along Ocean Boulevard. This wide family-friendly beach gets crowded, but it is wide enough that you can find a place to spread out comfortably. Sometimes near the hotel there are elaborate large sand castles to view and photograph – the creators love donations. Get here early to park nearby and secure a good spot on the sand. At lunch or dinner time you can enjoy any one of several restaurants at the Del.  If you walk south from the Del there is a beach below tall condo buildings called Coronado Shores Beach which has a free public parking lot. North of Dog Run Beach is the North Island Navy Base. Beyond that and visible in the distance is Cabrillo National Monument atop Point Loma.
