San Diego - Coronado

coronado beach
 

Coronado Beach – Coronado Beach extends north of Hotel del Coronado for over a mile. This white, flat sand beach is perfect for kids to build sand castles or go boogie boarding (lifeguards are on duty). Look for dolphins in the water, and "pelican parties," pelicans diving into the waves.

    Glorietta Bay Rent pedal boats and pedal around to your heart's content. At Glorietta Bay Park, there is a playground, grassy area and small sandy beach.
