Coronado Bridge, San Diego

Soak in sweeping views of the San Diego Bay while driving on . Serving as the main artery from San Diego to Coronado, the 3.41 km (2.12 mi) bridge stands 61m (200 ft) above the water. With 30 mission-arch shaped concrete piers jutting high out of the water, the bridge is one of the area’s most notable landmarks. Make your way across while enjoying views of the city’s coastline, Point Loma, and Coronado, and then head into town for lunch at the Coronado Hotel or to explore the eccentric mix of local shops. Catch the bus from San Diego to Coronado to avoid the hassle of parking.

  • The bridge is beautiful and a must for getting to the sandiest beaches. We loved getting our feet wet and feeling the sand in between our toes. My husband's first time!  more »
  • Drove across the bridge quite a few times when visiting San Diego. It's an awesome view from the water as well.  more »

  • People say the best things in life are free - this is certainly true when you cruise over the Coronado bridge. A heavenly feeling starts to come up when your convertible is breathing the air, your gaze flies across the ever-blue sky and your sense of distance and space gathers the vast amount of data when you look down the bridge. This construct of ingenuity couldn't be more impressive and resembles a short, but pleasant flight above San Diego. It doesn't matter if you want to impress your date or entertain family friends, a drive across this bridge will appeal to everyone. Connect this quick excursion with the nearby scenic drive and the gas used for this trip will, for the first time ever, be worth less than what you have experienced!
  • Love this! You can’t be disappointed. Great experience and don’t forget to stop at the park At the bottom to see the artwork. Amazing!
  • Great bridge.. no tolls.. Coronado is pocket of civilization in a metropolitan area that is rapidly becoming San Francisco south..
  • The Coronado Bridge did not exist when dad served in the Navy, everyone used the ferry service or drove down to Imperial Beach and came back up the strand. IMO, this bridge is very beautiful, but I also like it because it allows the Navy unimpeded access to the harbor. That means more to me than anything because I love our Navy.
