About Coronado Shores Beach in Coronado, California

Coronado Shores Beach, aka South Beach, is a wide sandy beach on Coronado Island. It is located in front of the Coronado Shores Beach Club resort and condominium complex at Avenida de la Arenas and Silver Strand Boulevard.

Coronado Shores Beach tends to be less crowded than the main Coronado Beach because it’s seemingly less accessible, however it does have a free public parking lot. Since there is a lifeguard here, it’s a great place for families to enjoy.

To find this beach just look for the tallest buildings on Coronado Island. The public parking lot is behind the beach in the condo complex. Ask at the Coronado Shores entrance booth about public beach day-use parking areas and they will point you in the right direction. It’s not a huge lot so it could get filled up if you don’t get here early. If you were to walk south on Coronado Beach from the Hotel Del Coronado you will be at Coronado Shores Beach.

If you visit Coronado Shores in the winter and at extremely low tides, the shipwreck of the SS Monte Carlo might be visible due to shifting sand from winter storms. The 300 foot long concrete ship was used as a floating casino three miles offshore and was blown onto South Beach in a storm on New Year’s Day 1937.
