Step off of the ferry that shuttles its passengers from Downtown San Diego to Coronado Island and you step into a place is unique in the San Diego area. Walkers are prolific. Golf carts and bicycles are common. And highrises are absent except for a section at the beach, leaving a wide open sky. This is Coronado Village, which starts on the Northeastern side of Coronado island and cuts through Coronado on Orange Avenue.
From the shores of Coronado Village near the ferry, you can get a scenic look at Downtown San Diego as well as a closeup of all types and sizes of ships coming into the harbor. It's a great place to stroll, catch a bite to eat or get some sun and sand at Centennial Park. Steps from the ferry are several condo communities that have the best views of the water and the Downtown skyline. The Landing is one, with 4 story buildings in a tiered shape. Large balconies are an inviting way to enjoy the water view, but you only have to step outside for a walk along the shore to get an even better view. The Landing is steps away from the ferry, several waterside restaurants and the Coronado Village town area.
Coronado Point is another community next to the water. These 4-story buildings also have expansive balconies. The penthouse condos have vaulted ceilings covered in windows.
Head down Orange Ave towards Hotel Del Coronado and you'll find a nice smattering of small restaurants and boutiques beckoning the tourist, and service providers (hair salons, lawyers, dentists) catering to the locals. Most of the other condo communities in Coronado Village are smaller and rarely come up for sale. El Alhambra De Coronado is one exception - this charming 4 story condo building is arranged in a square with a fountain in the center courtyard. It is across the street from Spreckels park on Orange Ave, with groceries and restaurants a block away.
There's plenty of interesting condo buildings to explore in Coronado Village and you'll want to find one in the location and style that works for you. Contact our team of condo and townhome experts to help find your next place here in this unique part of the world.
