One can say Coronado is an amenity of downtown San Diego, a 10-minute ferry ride away. You don’t even need a car! Once on the other side of the bay, you’ll find a selection of new things to do in Coronado including art galleries, theater, white-water beaches, and the historic Hotel del Coronado.
For purposes of price comparison, it helps to think of Coronado as consisting of three distinct districts. The Village is the older, historical part of town bisected by the Orange Avenue business district. Coronado Village has a large central beach along Ocean Avenue, shopping, golf, restaurants, parks and hotels. The waterfront detached homes in the Village are very expensive, ranging from the low $700s for a bay-view condo to $15 million and more for a large, oceanfront home. Single-family homes several blocks from the beach in the Village can cost as much as $4 million.
Immediately to the south of the Hotel Del are the Coronado Shores, a luxury condominium development of 10 high-rise buildings fronting the ocean. Most of the units in the Shores have panoramic views of San Diego Bay or the Pacific Ocean. Residents of this complex enjoy the use of four pools and spas, clubhouses, eight tennis courts, and the beach outside their doorstep. Units are priced between $600K and $3 million.
Further south along the Silver Strand peninsula are the Coronado Cays, a luxury residential marina with 1,201 detached homes and condos situated between the ocean and the bay. Many of the homes in the Cays have their own boat docks, and most have ocean or bay/channel views. Amenities include a large park, 24-hour private security, tennis courts, and pools, funded by modest homeowners’ dues. All of the homes in the Cays are within walking distance of Silver Strand State Beach. Prices start in the high$500s for a smaller condominium and go up to $15 million-plus.
