The day concludes with a spectacular fireworks finale over San Diego Bay, viewed from the Coronado Ferry Landing, or a fireworks display in Glorietta Bay.  Click here for more details about July 4th in Coronado.

Celebrate early on July 2 with our Del Beach Bash, an annual tradition for Hotel del Coronado and Beach Village guests alike. We transform the beach into a party to remember with live music by Ron’s Garage band, bars, fire pits, s’mores and a spectacular fireworks display.
