Coronado Transportation

Getting there is half the fun

Whether you arrive by water, bridge or road, part of the charm and beauty of visiting Coronado is just getting there in the first place.

Bridge, Ferry, Water Taxi or Silver Strand

There are four options for getting to Coronado Island from San Diego: driving across the beautiful San Diego-Coronado Bridge, taking a ferry or water taxi across The Big Bay or driving across the seven-mile Silver Strand peninsula.

By Boat

The Coronado Ferry leaves from downtown San Diego at the Broadway Pier and travels to and from the Coronado Ferry Landing. The Water Taxi offers on-call service to and from the Ferry Landing MarketplaceCoronado Island Marriott Resort & Spa and the Glorietta Bay Marina, located across from the Hotel del Coronado.

By Car

The award-winning San Diego-Coronado Bridge quickly became an area landmark after it opened on August 3, 1969. The distinctive curve and soaring sweep of the bridge was the first structural conquest of the Big Bay, joining the island of Coronado and the city of San Diego. Measuring 2.12-miles long and five lanes wide, the bridge has a clearance of approximately 200 feet, allowing the tallest ships to pass beneath it. The bridge also serves as the perfect gateway between Coronado and the popular neighboring attractions of San Diego.

Once There

Once on Coronado, many people enjoy biking throughout the neighborhoods as well as pedaling along Coronado’s bayside shore; a 16-mile bike path hugs the island. The path provides cyclists, inline skaters and walkers a scenic route to see the Port of San Diego, The Big Bay, San Diego skyline and park grounds of Coronado.
