Coronado Municipal Beach was voted as the United States' top public beach in 2012 by the annual "Dr. Beach" survey, which ranks the nation's public beaches according to environmental and tourist accommodation factors. The beach showcases four public areas, including Coronado City Beach, Centennial Park, Glorietta Bay Park, and Tidelands Park, which all offer water access, picnic areas, and children's playgrounds. It is known for its glittering sand, which is caused by the presence of mica in beach sand deposits. Other popular visitor activities at the beach include coastline strolling, kite flying, surfing, and volleyball, which is permitted at several beachfront courts. Along the beach's northern end, dogs are allowed to roam freely with owner supervision. The beach is also home to the Hotel Del Coronado, constructed in 1888, which has hosted international luminaries such as Marilyn Monroe, Charlie Chaplin, and Franklin D. Roosevelt.
