Coronado Beach

Welcome to Coronado

Coronado is an idyllic beach city best known for its sandy white beaches, small-town charm, and gorgeous beachside Victorian homes. The alluring terrain of this beachside haven has an origin story steeped in local lore. According to a 1902 booklet published by the world-famous Hotel del Coronado (reprinted in the book Coronado: The Enchanted Island), “there is an old…legend, that Point Loma, on the southwest corner of the United States, is the oldest part of the Earth, and that Coronado Beach, protected by its sheltering arms…was given the first selection of all good things intended for the world.” And there are indeed good things in Coronado—in spades. Originally conceived as a beach resort hot spot, “Crown City” is a paradisiacal getaway for local San Diegans and thousands of yearly tourists—and it’s one highly coveted place to live.
