Coronado: Where the Beach Sparkles
Look out from the shores of downtown San Diego and the ocean won't be the only thing in view. San Diego Bay is sheltered to the north by Point Loma and from the south by an island and land-connecting spit covered by a naval air station and the small city of Coronado. It's there, on the over 10 miles of land sliding upward from Imperial Beach, where there's plenty of undeveloped coast to enjoy.
Coronado is home to some fascinating history, the longest open portion of the the Bay Shore Bikeway (as well as a nugget of the Pacific Coast Bicycle Route), and the longstanding Hotel del Coronado, where a beachside rarity can be had: food and drink service while lounging on the sand, a stone's throw from the waves.
This video is part of KCET and Link TV's “Summer of the Environment,” which offers a robust library of content on multiple platforms from June-August intended to ignite compassion and action for helping to save and heal our planet.
