Coronado Beaches & Parks


Award-winning Coronado Beach runs for nearly two miles and offers family-friendly swimming, beach volleyball, firepits, a designated dog beach and some of the most glorious sunsets you’ll ever witness. Think you see flecks of gold glinting amid the cashmere-soft sand? That’s the mineral mica. If you’re really lucky you’ll witness the electric blue glow of bioluminescence in the surf at night. Also keep an eye out for dolphins, and packs of Navy SEALS out for a run!

Fun Fact: If viewed from above, the raised beach dunes spell out C-O-R-O-N-A-D-O in succulents!

Coronado has 12 parks including Spreckels Park which is home to the Coronado Flower Show in spring and the Concerts in the Park series in summer. Over on the bayside of the island, Centennial Park offers a breathtaking view of the San Diego skyline – one of the most-photographed vistas in San Diego.
