Another popular San Diego area beach made the list this year. Coronado Beach is tops for kids, families, couples, and even dogs. It’s a walkable beach and typically doesn’t have large waves as it gets protection from Point Loma. A sidewalk and boardwalks back all the beaches along this shoreline. The famous Hotel Del Coronado and its various restaurants are nearby. At the north end of the beach is Coronado Dog Beach where many friendly pooches roam freely.
