At the Resort

Discover and experience truly perfect family vacations at our San Diego resort.

We go out of our way to make sure even our youngest guests feel welcome during your vacation in San Diego, and our resourceful Concierge is always close at hand to make reservation for a family dinner, offer suggestions for a special outing, or help arrange a babysitter.

Beach Cruisers

Our complimentary beach cruisers give resort guests a street-level view of local San Diego flavor! Shelter Island and the surrounding San Diego Bay area are some of the most bike-friendly parts of the city. Helmets and locks are provided with each bike.

Beach and Pool Cabana Rentals

Enjoy either our private beach or our newly renovated pool from the comfort of your own cabana. Each rental comes with a flat screen TV, Wi-Fi connectivity, bottled waters, comfortable seating for up to eight people, and an exclusive “Cabana Menu”. Cabanas are available to rent from 10AM to 6PM daily throughout the summer. Pricing may vary.

Reservations are required and can be made by contacting 619-221-8000.

Nightly Bonfires

Gather around the fire with family, friends, and fellow resorts guests to make s’mores and share memories both old and new! All your cares will melt away as you sit by a crackling fire on the resort’s private beach, surrounded by views of moonlit Point Loma, the Kona Kai Marina, and the most picturesque sunsets in Southern California.

S’more Kits are available for purchase throughout the resort—in your minibar, at Island Boutique, or in the nearby Fitness Center. Your purchase of a Kona Kai S’more Kit supports the local Point Loma Girl Scouts Chapter!
