Pet Friendly Coronado


Here on the Island, pets are (well deservingly) considered part of the family. Strolling along the local streets, you’re sure to see a wide variety of “pawsh” breeds accompanying their human companions in strollers, riding ‘shotgun’ on golf carts, and paddling their way along the bay. There’s a ton of activities for pet enthusiasts and their pals, here’s proof! .

Does your canine cutie hold the “corg-key” to your heart, are they your “fur-ever” friend, & your most “paw-some” partner? If your best travel/adventure buddy is non-human, you’re more than welcome here on the Island! Keep reading for some paw-sitively purrfect pet friendly outings, eateries, and events!

Hey beach bums, human and dog ones alike! Coronado Dog beach allows your precious pooch to mingle leash free, for a “doggone” great time! Coronado Dog Beach’s location on a peninsula gives it a legendary setting, with the historic Hotel del Coronado on one side and the rocky coastal cliffs of Point Loma on the other. This sprawling stretch of sand slopes down right into the calm surf, making it ideal for a pup paddle. When you’ve had your share of fun in the sun, make use of the convenient wash station fully equipped with a hose to clean your paws. 🙂 Coronado Dog Beach is open every day from 5 a.m. to 11 p.m. Enjoy this sunny space all year round!

How about some shopping on behalf of your pampered pet? We love “Wags’ N Tails”! Located centrally at 945 Orange Avenue in Coronado, CA 92118, it’s a one stop shop for all of your pet essentials! You can check them out on the web at , but we’d recommend stopping on in!

Looking for pet friendly accommodations!? Here on Coronado Island, that’s no problem at all!!!! Check out for a list of places to stay that will welcome your best bud with a smile. 🙂 Hotel del Coronado is just one of the fantastic options available! Upon your request, your furry friend will be provided with a bowl and a bag of treats at check-in. Your purrrfect pet (on a leash) is also welcome to join you to soak up some rays on The Del’s sundeck & to grab some tasty snacks at the beach side Taco shop.
