Family-Friendly Fun and a Breathtaking View
It is best-known for being such a peaceful getaway. No matter when you visit, the wide beach offers enough room for everyone without having that crowded feeling. It helps that it has limited access.
Breakers Beach features amazing views of the Pacific Ocean, the historic Hotel del Coronado, the lighthouse and Point Loma. At night, you can even see the lights from Mexico across the water.
Depending on when you visit, you also may see military training crews and aircraft carriers coming and going from the port. These massive ships are thrilling to those of all ages.
Great Wedding Spot

Did you know?
Along with Breakers Beach, Gator Beach just south of South Beach in Coronado are both private military beaches.
The beach also has volleyball courts. Feel free to rope anyone nearby into playing a game or two. You’ll find many willing participants.
The beach has a lot of amenities to offer. You can put up a tent if you like, but it also has cabanas for rent. There are areas with fire pits and permanent BBQ grills.
There are also public restrooms and outdoor showers. The military keeps them clean and updated for your comfort and convenience.
You Can Surf but it is not Great
If you want to surf, then you can do it here, but be aware it isn’t a super exciting spot. It is good for beginners or for boogie boarders. The waves are soft without a lot of pizzazz. It’s nice if you want an easy surf just to get out on the water.
