Coronado, also known as Coronado Island, is a resort city located in San Diego County, California, across and around San Diego Bay from downtown San Diego. Its population was 24,697 at the 2010 census, up from 24,100 at the 2000 census. It is part of the San Diego County, California. Coronado lies on the geographic combination of an island and a tombolo connected to the mainland called the Silver Strand. Coronado is a tied island, connected by a tombolo. In 2012, Dr. Stephen Leatherman, Director of the Laboratory for Coastal Research, ranked Coronado Beach as the best beach in the United States. Coronado is Spanish for "crowned one", and thus it is nicknamed The Crown City. Three ships of the United States Navy have been named after the city, including the USS Coronado (LCS-4).


It is a small resort city in the San Diego county. It is a popular tourist destination, known for its picturesque surrounding, beautiful beaches and the renowned historic Hotel del Coronado.

For artistic souls, there is Coronado Playhouse and Lamb’s Players Theater. For outdoors, there is Silver Strand Bikeway for bikers and beaches like the central beach for surfers. If you are visiting with family, a walk in the park is a must here. Come for a fun and entertaining time.
