Come laze on Coronado Beach

Coronado Beach's shimmering sands and rolling waves have magnetized families and fashionistas to this corner of Southern California for decades. Days are spent boogie boarding over the Pacific swells, languishing beneath sun umbrellas, wondering up at the handsome beachside mansions, or strolling the lively promenade in the shadow of swaying palm trees. And if all that sounds too good to be true, just wait until you see the wealth of opulent Coronado Beach vacation rentals, ranging from palatial condos with panoramic views over the ocean, to salt-washed beach shacks primed for surfing couples.

Between the rollers and the esplanade on Coronado Beach

With all the enjoyments of the Pacific Ocean _ surfing, beachcombing, boogie boarding _ popping up along this scythe-shaped arc of sand, you can rest assured there's going to be plenty of opportunities to get into the water _ especially if you've bagged one of the coveted Coronado Beach vacation rentals on Silver Strand Boulevard. But there's also oodles more to this enclave of San Diego. Theme parks and picnic spots coalesce around Mission Bay to the north, whale watching and dolphin spotting tours are ubiquitous, and this is a great place to go shopping for your new summer style, too.

Coronado Beach bursts with elegant attractions

The brilliant white exterior of the National Historic Landmark Hotel del Coronado is the perfect symbol of the glitz and glamor of Coronado Beach. Crowning the northern end of the district, its Victorian shell and timber decks are a picture of oceanside Californian life. South of that is the famous Silver Strand State Beach, where the sand glistens a metallic hue and surfers conquer the swells. And north of that is where you'll be able to cross into Mission Bay _ the home of Belmont Park's carousels and SeaWorld's twisting shark rides.

Enjoy Coronado Beach when the crowds have gone

The hot climate of South California means that San Diego enjoys long summer seasons that often persist well into the fall. With that in mind, it's possible to bag some seriously wallet-friendly Coronado Beach vacation rentals when the crowds of July and August have returned home, all whilst still getting the same dry, sunny days, and temperatures in the mid-70s. Search for your accommodation in May, September, or October if you fancy hitting the waves and soaking up the rays for less.

Sprayed by the Pacific in Coronado Beach

Coronado Beach is one of the last stretches of pearly sand on the American West Coast before the Mexican border. It certainly makes no secret of its beauty, either, flaunting those long stretches of glowing white-silver sand, and those seagrass-topped dunes for surfers and jet setters alike. Check out the Silver Strand State Beach for one of the most beautiful and untouched sections of coast in the area, and also be sure to hop across to the San Diego Bay National Wildlife Refuge, where wetlands and saltmarshes host rare flora and migratory birds.
