Coronado Island Gondola Rides in California Beach Destination, San Diego



Coronado Island in San Diego features some of the most treasured resorts and experiences to match the gentle feel that this warm beach destination affords. One such pleasure is the gondola ride that departs from the docks out in front of Loews Coronado Bay Resort. When you stay at the hotel and look out your hotel window to the bay, you are swept with romance in scenes such as the picture above.


The gondoliers suit up, invite riders on board, and off they go out into the San Diego Bay. You may pass them buy when riding on a dinner cruise. Or maybe your just watching from shore. But whatever you view, it's clear that the weather and views make this gondola event a memorable one.


Our best idea and one that seems to be quite popular, is to book a suite or room at the Loews, dine before or after your ride in the intimate dining room upstairs in the hotel overlooking the sweeping bay, and take the sunset gondola ride. What a way to soak up what San Diego is about. Nice hotels, beaches, good food, and pleasure rides on boats and watercraft.


For those who simply love a gondola ride, no matter where it is located, be sure to try other such California gondola ride experiences in Sunset Beach, Naples, Newport Beach and Oakland, to name a few.
