Coronado On The Top 10 USA Beach List 2017
Once again, Dr. Beach, the Florida International University professor who studies and ranks beaches in the United States, has named Coronado Beach as one of the top 10 for 2017. Coronado is number 9 on this year’s list. Last year it was ranked number 7, and in 2012, number one.
According to his website, “Coronado Beach is the toast of Southern California; it is a veritable oasis by the sea, measuring hundreds of yards wide.”
The historic Hotel Del Coronado is on a bluff above the beach, and their Sun Deck Bar & Grill is a spectacular place to have food and drinks, especially local craft beers. I often go there to enjoy a local San Diego craft beer while watching the sunset.
A mile north of Coronado Beach is Coronado Brewing Company, the only craft brewpub on Coronado Island. They serve award-winning beers and excellent pub food. Hop on the free shuttle bus that runs in the summer months for a short ride from the beach to the brewpub.
Travel Tip: alcohol of any kind is not allowed on Coronado Beach. For more information, read this article.Share This:
