If you want to ensure your vacation, staycation, or day trip is a resounding success, check out these must-know tips so you can get the most out of your time on the beach.
Stay On the Beach
No one likes a long commute, so skip the traffic by booking a hotel right on the beach.
One top pick is the Hotel Del Coronado, which is a mere few steps away from Coronado Central Beach. There you’ll enjoy a four star, family-friendly experience with waterfront views from your hotel window as well as a fantastic pool and fitness center complete with instructors.
Did you know?
Coronado Central Beach is on the Travel Channels “Top 10 US Beaches” list.
Check Parking Before You Go
If you opt to stay a little further away from the coast, make sure you check out the parking situation before getting in the car in the morning.
Many beaches do not have parking lots, while others have designated lots for your convenience. You don’t want to miss out on snagging that perfect spot for sunbathing because you couldn’t find a spot to park!
Another option is to take one of San Diego’s many public transportation options like a local rideshare with Uber or Lyft and skip parking all together!
Consider the Season
The best season for visiting these beaches depends on what activities you’re interested in doing!
If you want to surf, the colder months generally offer larger waves, while those looking to soak up the sun and heat before cooling off with a swim might be more interested in a spring or summertime visit.
