Coronado Beach

North Beach

Starting from the Northwest part of Coronado Beach. You will find Sunset Park. A well maintained grass field. The field is nice and level and gets used for many different sports. Dogs are not allowed in Sunset Park or the main beach directly across the street. However, there is an exclusive dog beach at the most western point right next to the Navy Base.
