Bask on the shimmering sands of the Coronado beaches

When you book Coronado vacation rentals, you can look forward to beautiful beaches, excellent year-round weather, and an abundance of exciting activities. The long, sandy beaches here are some of the best in the United States and, thanks to an infusion of the mica mineral (rarely found in beach sand), the sands sparkle in the most spectacular fashion. When you’re not sunning yourself on the beach, explore one of the many shopping and dining areas, like Orange Avenue, where you can also find theaters and galleries.

A world of activities awaits in Coronado

Cycling is a fantastic way to see the island of Coronado. As well as being a relaxing way to get around town, there are some superb bike trails to enjoy. The 9-mile-long Silver Strand Bikeway is a popular choice. Stretching from Coronado to Imperial Beach, this flat, gentle ride can be enjoyed by the whole family. San Diego Bay and the Pacific Ocean provide tons of fun activities to enjoy, including surfing, boating, and kayaking. Taking a romantic gondola tour as the sun sets is a beautiful way to end the day before heading back to the comfort of your Coronado vacation rental.

Take in the rich history of Coronado

An excellent starting point for your trip is the Coronado Visitor Center. As well as helping you orient yourself, it’s also home to the Coronado Museum where you can learn all about the island’s history, art, and architecture. They also have knowledgeable docents who offer tours, including one about Hotel Del Coronado. This beautiful historic hotel, which has hosted celebrities and presidents for decades, is an attraction in itself and is a must-see when visiting. Be sure to visit Ferry Landing, where you’ll find a range of boutique shopping and trendy galleries.

Leave your umbrella at home when visiting Coronado

Coronado enjoys a fantastic climate throughout the year, with the weather generally being dry and sunny. It receives an annual average of 265 sunny days, and only 9 inches of rain (way below the nation’s average of 39 inches), which mainly falls during winter. Temperatures push as high as 80 degrees during July and August, but the hot weather also brings the biggest crowds. If you’re intending to enjoy pure relaxation in the Coronado vacation rentals, an ideal time to visit is spring or fall, when temperatures are still high and make for pleasant days kicking back on the beach.

Explore the beautiful landscape of Coronado

Although not technically an island, Coronado is only connected to the mainland by a small stretch of land. On one side, you have the San Diego Bay, across which is the impressive skyline of Downtown San Diego. To the other, you have the Pacific Ocean affording stunning views, especially as the sun sets. The island is best defined by its fabulous beaches. Coronado Beach is consistently named the best beach in the United States by Stephen Leatherman, a world-renowned coastal expert better known as Dr. Beach.
