Biking in Coronado

Coronado Island has everything that you’ve come to expect from California and more. It has sun, surf, great local businesses, and the chance to really get out there and see the sights. Moreover, best of all, the bike trails on the island will ensure that you get the whole picture and don’t miss a thing.

Start your day by renting a bicycle on the boardwalk and then hit the road. The Bayshore Trail makes up the first portion of your ride, and the Coronado Bike Trail makes the rest of it. Overall, the two together comprise of six miles and will take you around the entire island.

So, what’s on Coronado Island that’s worth seeing? First off, there are plenty of sandy beaches, and lots of stops along the way where you can take a break, enjoy the scenery and have a snack. We recommend packing a lunch and making a day of it.

If you’re not interested in brown bagging your lunch, don’t worry — there are a few excellent places to get something to eat.

Another spectacular sight in San Diego is the La Jolla Cove.

Interestingly enough, part of the bike trail incorporates a non-biking zone. So, watch out for it and get off the bike and walk. That said, you’ll probably want to do this regardless at several points along the trail to slow things down and take in the scenery.
