Fido Friendly Nado!

Dog Beach

This off-leash beach located across from Sunset Park is the perfect spot to hang out with your furry friend and enjoy views of the Pacific, the iconic Hotel Del, and neighboring beachside community Point Loma. The dogs here are always super friendly and love coming up to people for pets, so your dog won’t be the only one having fun. The Coronado fire pits are also located close to Dog Beach, so camp out at one and get ready to finish the day fireside. Also, check out our beach package if you’re planning out a beach day and need the essentials!


Hotel Del Coronado

Coronado’s famous Hotel Del Coronado is welcoming towards pets! If you’re staying at The Hotel Del, they ask that you make them aware of your dogs breed and weight upon booking. If you’re just exploring, feel free to walk around the iconic victorian with your on-leash dog. The scenic walking path that wraps around the Del Beach hosts unbeatable views of the Pacific and extends throughout the property –  a great location for a jog, relaxing walk, and photo opportunities. You can even drop by Sun Deck or the Taco Shack with your pup for some bites served with an ocean view! 


Orange Avenue 

Coronado’s Orange Avenue stretches from 1st Street to The Hotel Del Coronado, offering about a mile of scenery, shopping, and local eateries. Dogs are welcome on Orange Avenue, inside some shops, and inside most restaurants (generally the outdoor seating areas). Drop by the Starbucks and check out the “Dogs of Coronado” wall, and possibly get your pup featured on it! Shops around town often have water bowls outside, so keep an out out for those – some also keep treats behind the counter. 



Wag n ’ Tails

Stop by Wag n’ Tails on Orange Avenue before you head to one of Coronado’s dog-friendly restaurants! A large wall of custom collars ranging from specialty Coronado-themed designs to solid colors ensures that your dog will be the most stylish in town. Pick up a “Happy Dog Club” hat to match! And don’t forget to check out the unique baked treats at the front counter before you go. This locally-owned shop has treats and toys that your dog (and yourself) is sure to love. Wag n’ Tails also has self-serve washing tubs if your dog needs a wash after a day at the beach!


Ferry Landing 

Head on down to the Ferry Landing and enjoy kayaking, bike paths, and dog-friendly restaurants and shops. Coronado Bike and Kayak Rentals is dog-friendly, for those looking for an aquatic activity during their trip. If your day is looking a bit more laid back, take a walk down the pedestrian/bike path that loops around the Ferry Landing, Tidelands Park, the Marriott Resort, and even takes you underneath the Coronado Bridge! Some of Coronado’s dog-friendly restaurants are located here as well. If you’re traveling with a service dog, you can also take the ferry across to downtown and spend some time there!


Coronado Golf Cars 

What’s better than cruising around the island on a golf cart? Cruising around island on a golf cart with your pet! Yes, your pets are more than welcome on the golf carts (and they’ll love it!). Take a drive down Ocean Boulevard before stopping at Dog Beach for some fun in the sun. Afterwards, grab some lunch at a dog-friendly spot such as The Henry or Tartine before spending some time walking around the Ferry Landing and checking out the views and local shops. Before returning your cart, make sure you have enough time to simply cruise around town and take in the nice weather and views! This is the best way to get around town and stop by the aforementioned dog-friendly spots all while having a blast.
