The city of Coronado, with its landmark 1888 Hotel del Coronado and a gorgeous white beach, sits across San Diego Bay from downtown, accessible via the Coronado Bridge or a short ferry ride. At the entrance to the bay, Point Loma has sweeping views across the sea and city from the Cabrillo National Monument.
