Soak in sweeping views of the San Diego Bay while driving on . Serving as the main artery from San Diego to Coronado, the 3.41 km (2.12 mi) bridge stands 61m (200 ft) above the water. With 30 mission-arch shaped concrete piers jutting high out of the water, the bridge is one of the area’s most notable landmarks. Make your way across while enjoying views of the city’s coastline, Point Loma, and Coronado, and then head into town for lunch at the Coronado Hotel or to explore the eccentric mix of local shops. Catch the bus from San Diego to Coronado to avoid the hassle of parking. Our San Diego online day trip planner makes visiting Coronado Bridge and other San Diego attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • This bridge is beautiful. We viewed it from the waterside and drove across also. Adding the curve made it amazingly beautiful. A must see when in San Diego.

  • Links Coronado to San Diego. An alternative to the ferry. Be sure to visit the El Coronado Hotel in Coronado.

  • Good looking views of San Diego skyline and bridge. Bridge could have used bike lane or walk lane plus little bit of glitter would have enhanced ocean view. Driving has no view. From park, you can see views.
  • There is so much to love about this bridge! It's truly a San Diego icon and great to photograph from any part of the city and Coronado. I do wish they had a bike line or a walk path for the bridge since you can't see the views that well when driving on it.
