Incorporated in 1890, Coronado is known as a “tied island” connected to San Diego’s mainland by Silver Strand State Beach. Home to the world-famous Hotel Del Coronado
and a bustling downtown area filled with shops and restaurants, Coronado offers a thriving community just minutes from Downtown San Diego. Often, it is accessed by car via the spectacular Coronado Bridge, or by ferry crossing San Diego’s harbor. Its unique location provides miles of waterfront both on the bay of San Diego, as well the vast Pacific Ocean.
Coronado locals enjoy pristine, world-famous beaches, including “Dog Beach,” which faces the Pacific Ocean and welcomes both people and their pets, and walkability to many area destinations including a charming main street. The town of roughly 25,000 residents provides a municipal golf course on the bay, a public library, tennis courts, and facilities around its public swimming pool including a gym, yacht club, and boat launching area.
Known for its quaint and charming neighborhoods, highly ranked schools, stunning skyline views, history, and world-class beaches, the city is a destination in its own right. Residents will enjoy its friendly, small-town feel and easy access to all that Downtown San Diego has to offer just minutes across the bay.
