Coronado is a resort city highly sought after as a tourist destination because of its large beaches and three large resorts – Hotel Del Coronado, Coronado Marriott, and Loews Coronado Bay Resort.
The Hotel Del Coronado is the most well-known resort in Coronado. It was built in 1888 and is also considered one of the top resorts in the world. It’s housed past presidents and some of the most prestigious historical icons in America.
At the north end of the island is the Naval Air Station. More than half of the land area is used for the Naval base.
Coronado is commonly mistaken as an Island. However, it is connection by the Silver Strand State Beach all the way down to Imperial Beach.
