Near the manmade islands of Mission Bay, this beach runs along Mission Boulevard and boasts a fabulous boardwalk. One of the best places in San Diego to soak up the city's beach lifestyle, this is an unsurpassed area for people watching or building sandcastles. For a faster pace, rent a bike or in-line roller skates or better yet, take a ride on Belmont Park 's world-famous wooden roller coaster. At whatever attraction you choose, be prepared for large crowds and limited parking at Mission Beach. There are a host of volleyball courts where you can spend your days enjoying in the sun with your friends.
A stroll along the boardwalk of this beach was wonderful. The views consisted of a beautiful ocean and beach, waves and surfers, gorgeous houses and great people watching. It was very entertaining. The only thing I wish they had was more refreshment and bathroom facilities along the way. Otherwise, I loved it.

Of all the beaches in San Diego....this beach is the tourist trap of San Diego! Ya, it has the Boardwalk to boost, and Giant Dipper...great....but this is the last beach I'd go to in San Diego for a relaxing fun day at the beach. Too many people. Many other beautiful beaches in San Diego to enjoy and relax...but if you have teens and you like all the traffic and congestion...feel free....this is your beach!
If you want to sit by the ocean and relax in a peaceful enviroment...Mission Beach is not the place for you. If you want action pack fun and excitement, then this is the place for you. This beach has the beauty of the ocean and the fun and excited of a mini fair. There are also stores and food all around so it is fun for everyone. There is alot of people at this beach all the time, so get there early to get a parking spot. If not, plan on driving around for a bit or walking a bit of a distance. My family loves this beach, that is why we continue to go back.
We love the beach...any beach, but Mission Beach is a great place to vacation if you have teenagers. We rent a beach house 1 week each summer-usually the week of the 4th of July. Probably the most crowded (and most expensive) week of the year but worth every penny. If you're looking for a place to take small kids, I'd head further north around Moonlight beach in Encinitas. This year they've banned alcohol on the beach, so it may be a bit more tame which isn't bad either.
