Posted 9 years, 3 months ago

You've just pulled off the largest event of your life, running off into the sunset with your prince charming. Now comes the fun part, where you get to enjoy time with your new husband, away from all the millions of decisions that make up a wedding.

Coronado offers the perfect venue for a romantic honeymoon, even claiming the title “Most Romantic Beach in California”.   

Where to Relax 

Sandy Shores

The first is obvious - the beach! Just pack a basket with goodies and you are in for a treat. Stretching over a mile long, our golden stretch of beach showcases stunning views of the Pacific Ocean and Point Loma Cliffs yearlong. Make sure to plan at least one evening to catch the sunset.

Concerts in the Park

Add music to your leisure with free concerts at Spreckels Park. Every Sunday during the summer, the park comes alive with dancing, music and jubilee. Pack a picnic to make it an evening getaway. For a full evening activity, stop by MooTime Creamery for dessert.

What to Do 

Whether you are looking for adventure or whimsical moments, Coronado has activities to fuel any desire.

Gondola Ride

The ultimate romantic activity, you will indulge in the magic of Venice as you glide through the enchanting canals of Coronado. Pack your own beverages to set the atmosphere and everything else will be included.

Hot Air Balloon Ride

Take to the skies in one of the most entrancing activities out there. See the shoreline disappear into the distance and take in the expansiveness of the Pacific Ocean. For a truly magical effect, take your adventure as the sun rises, enjoying a one of a kind view.

Hang Gliding or Para Gliding

While not technically in Coronado, it is one of the benefits of picking a honeymoon location with stunning views, yearlong sunshine and diverse activities.  Fuel your adventurous side by taking flight, or live vicariously by watching from the sidelines at Torrey Pines.
