Linked to downtown San Diego by the arching Coronado Island Bay Bridge and to southern San Diego County by a slender, sandy isthmus, Coronado Island is technically not an island, it's a peninsula. It's home to the North Island U. S. Naval Air Station and the U. S. Navy SEALS center, but it's not the military that attract tourists to Coronado Island. It's not Frank Baum's Oz House, Wallis Simpson's home or the Coronado Island Museum, either. It's the white, sandy beaches that have earned it numerous ratings as one of top ten beaches in the U. S.
