Actually, Coronado Beach's path is probably getting more and more beaten now that it's been voted one of America's best beaches. It has a decidedly relaxed, family atmosphere and a stunning backdrop in the Hotel Del.
When I lived in San Diego, I used to usually go to either Solana Beach or Del Mar (at 19th Street), but Coronado is a great place for families.
It seems that Ursula found one beach boy hehe but where are beach girls? :-) Hmmm... what to say, look ladies hehe.
If you wish to see more walk along the Coronado Beach towards... Mexico hehe. The border is easy to cross (southwards, southwards hehe).
