Tandem Bike Riding and Other Romantic Coronado Activities

Posted 8 years, 8 months ago

Golden beaches, shimmering sunsets and endless boardwalks allure countless couples to the secluded island of Coronado for romantic getaways. As the summer winds down and the hustle and bustle of fall begins, there isn’t a better time to escape for a little R&R.

So if you are looking for an inexpensive getaway for some quality time with your honey, consider Coronado. Here are several romantic suggestions that won’t break the bank:

Tandem Biking

Who said all romantic outings had to be mushy? Have some fun while you’re together. Trying new activities is the key to reigniting that spark. 

The flat terrain of the island offers the perfect venue to tackle tandem bike riding. We won’t lie, there will be a short adjustment period. Spice it with laughter and in no time you’ll be championing the boardwalks. For an extended ride, head along the strand toward the Coronado Cays. 

Holland’s Bicycles rents tandems as well as regular beach cruisers. Later this year we will be offering bike rentals straight from the Coronado Inn, making it easier than ever to explore the island.

Tandem Kayaking

Bike riding isn’t the only tandem sport on the island. Take to the water by kayak. Tours glide along the stunning San Diego skyline and beneath the iconic Coronado Bridge. 

No matter if you’ve kayaked a thousand times before, or this is your first time on the water, you’ll be mastering the sport in no time. Even on a tandem kayak. Check out Bike and Kayak Tours for the best Coronado urban tour.

S’mores at the Beach

The classic, romantic activities have stood the test of time for a reason—they are enjoyable! 

Snuggling under the stars next to a warm fire munching on warm s’mores alone is one of the best activities you can do. Add in the sound of the crashing waves and you’re in for a memorable treat. 

Coronado provides eight fire pits at North Beach. They are first come first serve, so you may want to claim yours early in the afternoon.

Gondola Ride

Enjoy the ultimate, romantic activity right here in Southern California. The Gondola Company transports you on an enchanting Venetian-style journey through the canals of the Cays. 

Make sure to bring a bottle of wine and appetizers to enjoy as you meander through the captivating waterways. For the most romantic experience, take the sunset cruise.

Affordable Accommodations 

After a long day of exploring, it’s always nice to have somewhere to retreat to. Lodging doesn’t need to break the bank. Coronado Inn provides affordable accommodations in the heart of the island. 

Nestled on the north side of the island, we’re two blocks from Ferry’s Landing. Families and couples alike enjoy spending their evenings walking the boardwalk to watch as San Diego’s skyline lights up in the evening. 

All other island attractions are within easy walking distance, which makes the Coronado Inn an easy choice for comfort, convenience and affordability.
