Coronado Central Beach is 1.5-miles of pristine beauty overlooking the Pacific Ocean. A nexus for swimmers, surfers, boogie borders, and sandcastle building aficionados alike, Coronado Beach easily makes the top of any list entitled, “Best Beaches in the United States.” This historic stretch of water doesn’t close down during the winter either. Beginning in December, whale watchers flock to the shore to snatch a glimpse of the impressive sight of the annual Humpback Whale migration.
