Coronado Island has some of the most sought-after beaches in the US, right across the harbour from San Diego. And rightly so, it’s one of the most beautiful stretches of the Californian coastline. This resort city is popular among surfers and sunbathers, but it’s more than just sparkling white sand beaches. Did you know that even though it’s commonly referred to as Coronado Island, it’s actually a peninsula? Coronado is also a port to US navy aircrafts (North Island Naval Station), providing specialised training to military and navy personnel, such as the US Navy SEALS (Naval Amphibious Base Coronado).
