Reconnect With the Whole Family at This Timeless Oceanfront Haven

Now is the time for gathering with loved ones, and there’s perhaps no better place to do it than at Hotel del Coronado, thanks to history, elegance, and seemingly endless options for fun.

Reconnect With the Whole Family at This Timeless Oceanfront Haven

Make time together more precious in the glow of the California sun.

Imagine the quintessential Southern California coast, filled with warm sunshine and long stretches of sandy beaches. Now add family, friends, stunning architecture, unparalleled service, and several immersive experiences, and you have the legendary Hotel del Coronado, located just minutes from downtown San Diego in Coronado. In this celebrated destination, travelers of all ages can reconnect, reinvigorate, and immerse themselves.

Crowd-pleasing seaside experiences

Relax and roam or choose from a variety of activities, including classic SoCal experiences. Spend the day at the stunning Del Beach playing games, kicking back on a chaise lounge with fringed umbrella or queen-size daybed with a half-moon cabanette for shade and privacy. Relish food and drink service on the beach as you listen to the waves and breathe in the fresh ocean breezes.

When you’re ready to explore, take out one of the resort’s beach cruisers. Casual bike riders will delight in Coronado’s paths along the bay and beach with spectacular ocean views. For more of a challenge, bike the Silver Strand to Imperial Beach path that goes all the way to Coronado’s Ferry Landing. From here, you can hop on a ferry to discover downtown San Diego and Seaport Village.

As evening emerges, stroll down to Del Beach for a private beach bonfire to roast marshmallows, make s’mores, and create new memories. Bask in the warm embrace of fire, friends, and family while experiencing a breathtaking sunset over the Pacific Ocean.
