Valentine's Day in Coronado: Take Romance to a Whole New Level

Posted 6 years, 2 months ago

Love is in the air in Coronado! While Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, we know there are plenty of ways, reasons, and opportunities to show your loved one how much they mean to you.

Make Coronado Inn your love nest for the night or extend your stay and keep the romance going for a long weekend. From candlelit dinners to romantic rendezvous around the island, here are five ways to spend time with the one you love while visiting Coronado.


Keep Up with Each Other at the Annual Valentine’s Day Run

Let the world know you’re taken with a customized bib at the Coronado Valentine’s Day 10k, 5k, and 1-Mile Fun Run. You can sign up for the run as an individual or couple, and choose a bib that represents your current relationship status (Available, It’s Complicated! or I’m Taken). It’s a way to practice a little self-care and self-love (by doing something healthy), and you’ll get to take home a commemorative T-shirt and Valentine’s Day-themed medal to help you celebrate the heart-filled holiday.


Dine with a View at the Ferry Landing 

Make a reservation for just after sunset and dine amidst the twinkling lights of downtown San Diego, just across the bay. At Candelas on the Bay, you can enjoy the view while dining on delicious Mexican cuisine, while Il Fornaio offers plates of Italian favorites served by candlelight. And if you’d rather have sweets with your sweet, the Ferry Landing also has dessert shops like Coronado Cupcakery and Choco Amore.


Enjoy Brunch Together (Instead of Dinner) 

A candlelit dinner might get all the glory when it comes to romance, but brunch can be just as special. Not only will you avoid the crowds, you’ll also be able to linger a little longer and spend more of the day together. The Crown Bistro Restaurant is a local favorite with mouthwatering dishes like banana foster French toast, eggs Benedict, and artichoke scrambles. There’s often a line out the door on weekends, but since Valentine’s Day falls on a Wednesday this year, you should be able to be seated and start sipping your mimosa without much of a wait.


Watch the Sunset on the Beach

Few things are as romantic as watching the sky change colors as twilight sets in. Grab a warm beverage then take a long walk on the beach just as the sun sets and share a quiet, intimate moment together.


Embark on a Romantic Cruise for Two

You don’t have to travel all the way to Italy to take a romantic gondola cruise; the Gondola Company can take you around the canals and waterways right here in Coronado. Enjoy a romantic and relaxing cruise through the Coronado Cays and be transported to a world of your own. Special Valentine’s Day cruises will embark on Monday, Tuesday, and of course, Wednesday. Each 50-minute excursion includes a complimentary dessert plate, blankets, an ice bucket, and souvenir wine glasses. Wine bottles are available for purchase or you can choose to bring your own beverage. You can take the romance up a notch by upgrading your trip to include a professional mandolin or violin player to serenade you as you sail.
