5 Reasons Coronado San Diego Is a Great Place to Live in 2021

When it comes to living the dream, dreams don’t get much better than coming home to Coronado, San Diego.

Coronado, North Island, and the Silver Strand (which connects Coronado to the mainland) create San Diego Bay. Residents, therefore, enjoy both the waters of the Bay and the ocean surf.

The name Coronado means “crowned one,” and there are few ways the place doesn’t live up to its name. With the completion of the famous Hotel del Coronado in 1888, the island began its long history as a resort destination. By 1900, a “Tent City” was established for more modest vacationers, and the fun has continued as the island burgeoned into an established residential community with resort flair.

It’s also home to the Naval Air Station North Island, the Naval Amphibious Base Coronado, and a training center for Navy Seals, who one can often see training on the beaches in the distance. Therefore, it should come as no surprise the population is full of military men and women.

If you’re looking for great views, ample opportunities to enjoy the outdoors, a close-knit community, access to downtown, or everything in one, perfect package, Coronado Island is the place to be.

JUST UPDATED: San Diego's 7 Best Places to Live in 2022 | 2023

To get into specifics, though, here are five reasons why you’ll want to explore the real estate possibilities available in this jewel of an area.

It isn’t called “The Crown” for nothing.

Here's a quick rundown of our list:

Reason 1 - A Close-Knit Community

While many areas popular with tourists lack that cozy feel, Coronado residents enjoy the best of both worlds. Not only does it offer the excellent amenities that delight tourists, it can also boast its own cultural institutions, annual community events, recreational opportunities, and so much more.

JUST UPDATED: San Diego Real Estate Market Forecast in 2022 | 2023

Residents are kept apprised of all that’s happening around town through the local newsletter, Coronado Currents. Every few months, all residents are mailed the publication that details local issues, arts and cultural happenings, and contains community announcements. The municipal website is also chock full of information and regularly updated with community happenings.

Annual community events also serve to bring out the neighbors throughout the calendar year. Big celebrations include Motorcars on Main Street, Historic Home Tour, a July 4th Parade, the Coronado Summer Concerts Series, the Coronado Art Walk, Coronado Speed fest, the Holiday Open House and Parade, and the Coronado Flower Show.

Reason 2 - Plentiful Opportunities to Enjoy San Diego’s Incredible Climate

Athletes of all types can find something to do in Coronado.

Since this is California we’re talking about, we’ll start with the beaches. There’s a beach for everyone in Coronado, from surfers to dog-lovers to families.

From South Beach, you can spot the nation’s future Navy Seals in training, while North Beach is where surfers ride the waves by day and the gleam of beach bonfires lights up the night. North Beach is also the place to take your dog for a good time. The 1.5 miles of white sand beach is what caused Dr. Stephen Leatherman (aka, “Dr. Beach”) to give Coronado Beach the Best in the U.S. title back in 2012. For families, the Coronado Ferry Landing allows kids to enjoy the bay waters with a great view of downtown San Diego for adults. Campers and more naturalist types can camp or explore the undeveloped miles of shoreline and nature preserve of Silver Strand State Beach.

Golfers will appreciate the easy access to the country’s best public golf course, Coronado Municipal Golf Course. Despite its resort feel, the fact it’s a public course let’s patrons enjoy world-class views for a reasonable price.

Coronado’s sixteen miles of boardwalk is perfect for those looking to stroll or jog, and plentiful bike paths are great for cyclists.

Reason 3 - A great Place for Families to Call Home

Coronado offers wonderful educational and recreational opportunities for families.

The Coronado Unified School District boasts high-achieving institutions for K-12 students, including Coronado Middle School (CMS), Coronado High School, Silver Strand Elementary, and Village Elementary. Those looking for private school opportunities can send their K-8 children to either Sacred Heart Parish School or Christ Church Day School.

Coronado also has its own Recreation Department, offering plenty of fun for out-of-school hours. Kids (and adults) can enjoy arts and crafts, dance classes, sports leagues, and tennis and aquatics classes. They also offer scholarships to area children so no one need miss out on these great opportunities.

Families will also appreciate the programs offered at the Coronado Public Library, including story times, adult classes, and a Piano Concerts Series.

Reason 5 - A Stable Housing Market that’s Only Going Up 

No doubt about it, Coronado has so much to offer that real estate doesn’t come cheap, but 2020 | 2021 is a great time to buy. While the population of the island is predicted in increase over the coming decades, housing growth will be much slower.

According to Trulia, the median home sales price is $1,530,000. Redfin notes, though, that prices are down 5.2% in the last year. Currently, homes are selling for 4% below list price, and buyers have a variety of architectural options on the island.
