San Diego locals know that a quick drive over the Coronado Bridge is the quickest way to arrive at a beach lover’s paradise. Coronado’s central beach is a great place to enjoy a sunny day. Pack a picnic and bring your beach chairs. If you enjoy a hands-on nature experience, don’t forget to check out the tide pools that form around the rocks directly in front of the Hotel Del Coronado. Kids can explore crabs, shells, sea anemones and other ocean life. Check online tide calendars for low tide times. Slather on the sunscreen because even on cloudy days, you'll feel the heat!
