Bask on the shimmering sands of the Coronado beaches

When you book Coronado vacation rentals, you can look forward to beautiful beaches, excellent year-round weather, and an abundance of exciting activities. The long, sandy beaches here are some of the best in the United States and, thanks to an infusion of the mica mineral (rarely found in beach sand), the sands sparkle in the most spectacular fashion. When you’re not sunning yourself on the beach, explore one of the many shopping and dining areas, like Orange Avenue, where you can also find theaters and galleries.
