Coronado hotels are tucked onto San Diego's North Island. Coronado is joined to San Diego by a meandering peninsula, called the Silver Strand, connecting to the mainland by two separate roads. Both roads intertwine with the San Diego Freeway, one by Sherman Heights and the other at Imperial Beach near Castle Park. Coronado Island hotels fill with more than 2 million visitors annually seeking an area great for vacations that encompasses everything needed for a fun and exciting getaway. Plenty of things to do, many local attractions, and more than fifteen excellent Coronado Island beach lodging options create a fantastic destination.
