Homes for Sale in Coronado
Coronado, also known as Coronado Island, is an affluent resort city located in San Diego County, across San Diego Bay from downtown San Diego. Coronado is Spanish for “the crowned one”, and thus it is nicknamed The Crown City. This enchanted “island” has it all—beaches, parks, world-class resorts, highly-rated schools, a fabulous climate and an ideal location. Coronado is a mere two-mile drive from the hustle and bustle of downtown San Diego. Coronado is known by visitors and its residents as one of the most beautiful and unique beachfront communities in the world. Coronado is frequently referred to as an island, but it’s really a peninsula. It connects to San Diego by the San Diego-Coronado Bridge, and to Imperial Beach to the south by State Highway 75. Coronado’s friendly neighborhoods with quiet tree-lined streets have a mix of architectural styles from well-preserved Victorian homes to charming Spanish villas to cozy beach cottages. Coronado beach, known for its expansive sandy shore, is consistently rated among the world’s top ten beaches. Coronado is the perfect place to swim, sail, surf, bike, run, walk, play tennis, golf, take a tour, or watch a play. Visitors can charter a boat from one of the yacht marinas or visit an art gallery or day spa for pampering.
