Beautiful Beach at the Hotel Del CornadoFlag review
We visited the beach at the Hotel Del Coronado for the day. You can park on the street and walk around this historic hotel. The beach is beautiful and both times we visited there was a man building large, intricate sand castles. My son also loves to jump in the waves. Probably one of our favorite, family friendly beaches in San Diego.
Tips for Families
Eating at the hotel is expensive. La Salsa Restaurant (fast food mexican) on Orange St. has great fish tacos and a kids menu at great prices. You can take the ferry to Coronado Island but its a longish walk to the Hotel Del Coronado. Take the bridge for a great view.

Okay so I didn't know you could write reviews about beaches too.. but here it goes. One of the reasons why I love San Diego so much is because of this gorgeous beach! It's as good as it gets- soft sand, blue water, plenty of space and Hotel del Coronado off in the distance.. can't get any better than that! I've been going to this beach ever since I was a little kid mainly to boogeyboard. The waves are really perfect for boogeyboarding, but now that I'm older, I usually just suntan or wade in the water. Coronado also has a lot of cute tiny shops and restaurants you can go to and its pretty fun just to look around. The huge mansions outlining the beach can also be eye candy as well. The only reason I'm giving ...
