Sunsets in Coronado, San Diego

Sunsets can be spectacular in San Diego, and Coronado which is only a two mile drive or so from downtown San Diego is no exception.  Some of the best sunsets can be found right here.

Me and the kids went to one of our favorite places in the San Diego area – across the Bay – and onto the island of Coronado.  Coronado is only a 5 minute drive or so from  downtown San Diego – you head down Highway 5 and take the 75 South to Coronado, then when you see Orange Avenue, make a left and you can head to the Hotel Del.

I think this picture below would have come out nice if the car hadn’t got in the way, but I think the passengers wanted to see the sunset too.  I can’t blame them.

I think the sunset looks pretty like this too

Most of these pictures were taken right before we got to Hotel Del (just a few minutes walk away), and some further down the page were taken at the beach in front of the hotel.

I think these two trees below might be the same ones that were in my personal favorite sunset picture that I took in Coronado (seen below the one directly underneath)

The Hotel Del is swell!  It’s a great place to visit, or even stay at (I stayed there once for three nights in 2008).  Top your visit off with some gelato from Mootime Creamery, their wonderful ice-cream store.

The clouds were even a little black today, we’ve had quite a bit of rain the past few weeks.

There’s nothing like bringing in the New Year in with sunsets, and that’s just what we did this year – that’s when these pictures were taken (except for the Christmas Day, 2011 picture).  Remember, to get to Coronado from San Diego is not very hard at all.  It’s just a two mile drive or so from downtown, across the Coronado Bridge.

To get this view of the San Diego skyline (seen below), all you do is go across the Coronado Bridge and make a right at Orange Avenue, you would then make another right, and park on your left hand side where the shops are and where the Il Fornaio restaurant is.  Some of the hotels seen in the San Diego skyline are the Hyatt Grand Manchester, the Marriott Marquis & Marina and the Hilton BayFront (I’ve also stayed at all these hotels).  Please feel free to get in touch with me for making hotel reservations, or recommendations.  As you can see, these hotels are fairly close to Coronado, and should definitely be on your list of hotels to consider staying at when you come to San Diego.  You will have the best of both worlds – be close to Coronado and still be close to all the other fabulous attractions near these hotels, such as Seaport Village, the Gaslamp District, Balboa Park, San Diego Zoo, Sea World, and shopping at one of the most gorgeous shopping malls in the entire world – at Horton Plaza.  Please see my previous post: Scenic San Diego.

By the way, I wish you all a Happy New Year, and I’m so sorry for not writing as frequently, time is in short supply….but I will try harder.  May the New Year bring you plenty of spectacular sunsets, and much happiness.

    What a great tour You organized to us thru Your wonderful photos. Especially I love sunset photos. The second picture from the top is my favorite. In that photo the car is filling so nicely the beautiful sunset. Because my interests are also cars, I tried to guess which car it is In that, but I could not. Anyway, I love that photo!

      I am so glad that you likes the photos, Matti, and thank you so much for your wonderful comment. As far as the car in the sunset picture – I’m not sure what type of car it is either, but I’m glad I included that one now, especially since you like cars. Happy New Year to you, and your family, and I hope you have a fabulous week!
