How ’bout easy accessibility alongside one-of-a-kind shopping and dining? Coronado’s the one.

Located just 8 miles and a fifteen-minute drive from San Diego International Airport, Coronado Island makes meetings a breeze with convenient access and award-winning beaches that double as the perfect backdrop for group activities. From yoga on a yacht and sandcastle building to training with a Navy SEAL and kayaking under the Coronado Bridge, it’s a beachfront paradise with wonder all around.

And Coronado Island is booming with fresh event space that expands the opportunities to gather in the heart of the city.
