Bikes, Brews and Beachside Fun in Coronado

A one-day SoCal-style itinerary

If you only have one day to see Coronado, make the most of it. Take in the sights on two wheels, visit a family-owned brewpub and end the day at one of the most famous hotels—and beaches—in the world.

A Perfect Day on Coronado Island

Take in the fantastic waterfront views while pedaling through one of Southern California's most beautiful cycle paths on Coronado Island. After, cool down with a cold one at Coronado Brewing, which boasts nine signature brews and delicious eats. Later, gather around a fire pit on the beach at the Hotel Del Coronado and savor toasty s'mores next to the ocean waves.

Morning:

Wake up and gear up for a bayside bike ride. Rent a bicycle from Bikes and Beyond and enjoy an easy 10-mile ride between Coronado and Imperial Beach along a portion of the Bayshore Bikeway. Cyclists pedal parallel to the beach and the glistening San Diego Bay along this route, often referred to as the most beautiful and cyclist-friendly bike path in Southern California.

Afternoon:

Sip and sample craft brews at the family owned Coronado Brewing, famous for its top-rate handcrafted beers and delicious food like wood-fired pizzas and fresh seafood, a perfect spot to fuel up after a long ride. Nine signature beers are brewed on-site including Idiot IPA, Coronado Islander IPA (“a liquid expression of hometown pride”) and Stingray IPA.

Evening:

When the sun goes down, fires light up the beach in front of iconic Hotel del Coronado. Guests at The Del can enjoy a special nighttime ritual with their toes in the sand, as the hotel provides all the fixings for s’mores at your private fire pit, along with a fun Roast menu of other campfire foods and spirited drinks. All can be enjoyed under a blanket of stars with the rolling surf as a soundtrack.
