Coronado Named a Top 10 U.S. Beach for 2016
Dr. Beach, the Florida professor who studies and ranks beaches in the United States, has once again named Coronado Beach as one of the top 10 for 2016. In 2012, he named Coronado Beach #1.
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. Craft beers on draft cost $9.00 for a pint.
A mile north of Coronado Beach is Coronado Brewing Company, the only craft brewpub on Coronado Island. 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:
