Coronado/The Del what to do for an evening trip

We would like to spend a few hours early evening on Coronado in or around the Del area. Can we take a walk along the beach and maybe stop at the Del for a drink or is the area strictly for guests only? Also, if the kids are with us is there family place for a dinner, ice cream, etc. It just seems like a beautiful area. I think we would enjoy spending a little more time there that just a stop on a sightseeing trolley. Any suggestions

Yes you will have a grew time on the beach and so will the kids. And you ca. Go have a drink or a meal at the outside patios with your family at the Del and you must see the sunset from there

The Del is not just for guests!

We always bring folks to look around the building and grounds. There is a hallway with old photos of Coronado and pix of when the movie Some LIke It Hot(with Marilyn Monroe)was filmed there.

You can have a drink light snack on the outdoor deck.

There is live music on weekends.

There are also other restaurants in the hotel and on the main street, Orange Ave. out front.

You can rent bikes or 4 wheeled vehicles called surreys and the whole family can pedal together on the street along the beach.

You can take the passenger ferry from downtown across and rent the bikes there and use them to get to the Del if you like OR I think you can also rent at the Del. The Ferry Landing is a bus ride away from the front of the Del but there is also a city bus from downtown that goes there, the 901.

Here is the route map and timetable for the bus.

There's a little place within the Del called Eno, and it's a wine, cheese, and chocolate bar.

On Tuesdays, it has Tasting Tuesday - 10 wines for $12

On Wednesdays, it has half price cheese flights

On Thursdays, a bottle of wine is half off

And Friday has $5 glasses of wine from 5-7 PM


You can either sit inside or out on the patio with gas fireplaces.

Right around the corner from Eno (still in the Del complex) is an ice cream shop for the kids.

And there's a little restaurant that I believe is called the "Sundeck" that serves sandwiches and salads (no waiter--walk up to a window, place your order, and wait for your name to be called) for about $15 per. There's also a small bar there, and the sundeck is elevated overlooking the pool and the beach, and is protected by glass wind screens.
