Welcome to Coronado
Coastal elegance and resort-style living in a stunning San Diego enclave
Candy-colored skies ablaze with the setting sun, the silhouette of palm trees tower against the horizon, and the soft whisper of waves crash along the sandy shore in Coronado, a seaside paradise. One of San Diego’s most coveted towns, Coronado is a narrow swath of gorgeous beach jutting out into the San Diego Bay. The sweeping ocean vistas provide some of the best views in Southern California, and the water serves as a playground for outdoor adventurers. This breezy, affluent town strikes the perfect balance between effortless elegance and lavish living, offering residents an idyllic place to live well.
Coronado properties shine the brightest out of all of San Diego’s stunning real estate gems. The expertly preserved historic homes here evoke the grandeur of a bygone era, while the lavish oceanfront estates take the idea of luxury to dizzying heights. Some of the area’s most sought-after communities include Coronado Shores
, Coronado Village, and Coronado Cays
, all of which share the same spectacular scenery and the same fashionable zip code.

Resort living is at its best in Coronado, and residents reap the rewards. You will often find locals teeing up on the golf course or enjoying a leisurely brunch under the swaying palm trees. Sunsets here are sublime, and the silky, sugar-white beaches are perfect for lounging the afternoon away under the sun.
Coronado residents love their pups, and morning jogs on the beach with the family dog are a common sight here. Part of Coronado’s charm is its laid-back, small-town feel, and residents are quick to offer a warm smile and friendly wave to passersby — usually from their bike or golf cart, modes of transportation favored by locals.
Dining, Shopping & Entertainment
Considering Coronado was built on the ambitions of a first-class hotel and resort, there is little wonder that the town now boasts an equally impressive culinary scene. Situated in the glittering Hotel del Coronado
, the ornate Crown Room Brunch
serves a luxe brunch, while Stake Chophouse & Bar
creates the ultimate supper club experience.
The bright, airy dining room and harbor vistas at Peohe’s
serve as the perfect backdrop to the impeccable menu of fresh seafood and chef-driven delights. Alfresco dining takes advantage of the spectacular views, while the inventive sushi menu pampers the palate.
Things to Do
Sun and surf take center stage in balmy Coronado, and outdoor recreation is high on the list of things to do in this charming beach town. An iconic San Diego spot, the Hotel del Coronado
is considered the city center, and with good reason — Coronado grew up around the Del, as locals call it, and embraced the life of luxury the hotel exemplified. This swanky landmark entertains the town with holiday light shows, winter ice skating, and wellness services.
Nestled on the bay side of the peninsula, the Coronado Municipal Golf Course
offers a championship course and sweeping waterfront views, along with a national ranking as one of the best courses in the nation. Coronado Beach
is, of course, a popular destination, and this canine-friendly town even sports its own little resort of sorts for pups — the Coronado Beach & Dog Park
, a haven that invites residents to splash with their dogs and enjoy off-leash play time along a waterfront dog run.
