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.
What can I tell you, I love Mission Beach since I started coming in 1994--Its become a special place in my heart... the people, the food, the atmosphere and like no other... Try Luigis for italian, is inexpensive an good.
For breakfast try Zinzebar is just awesome.
ride your bike at the bay rather than the beach boardwalk, is a lot nicer.
and stay at the Catamaran, the view is unbelieveable of the city and the bay of San Diego. Take the time and go...you will not ever regret it.
The first time I went to Mission Beach was in 1994. Last year I went twice in about 2 months. You have to ride the rollercoaster on the beach nothing can top it. The shopping is reasonable especially if you want to pick up the 3/10.00 t-shirt specials. I would say go up the boulevard until you reach sunset cliffs that is a really a great place to take pictures too!
I loved mission Beach so much-everyone was so friendly and helpful with directions...the sun slipping into the ocean at night was amazing.I sold my origional hemp jewelry from Vermont on the beach to locals and they loved it..the scenery was excellent inspiration for my paintings..I hope to permanantly relocate out to there in the future,Springfield,Vermont seems so dull and lifeless since living out there for 3 months..its so close to everything and Balboa Park and all surrounding it is beautiful.Its quite possibly one of the best spots on earth. -Amber
We went to Mission Beach two different times during our stay in San Diego. The first time we walked around the park, and looked at the different shops. We then went to the roof top deck of Canes, had a couple drinks and watched the waves roll in, very relaxing. Then we walked on the beach collecting shells. On the last day we went back, went to Canes again, this time we ate, food very good!! but the gulls can become your new best friend!! we walked the beach again then rode the coaster before we had to drive back to AZ. One word of warning for the coaster...They squish you in!! if you have bigger thighs, wether they be muscle or flab, it hurts!! but I think its worth it.
You may or may not like Mission Beach depending on the day. Weekends are really busy in the summer so stay away. Mission Beach covers a wide area and there are many things to do from laying out to shopping to kayaking.
I've stayed at the Mission Bay Tennis Resort, it was great, it's right across from Sea World, it's an overall great place to stay. we had a ball walking around and touring lots of things, San Diego in itself is a great place to visit.
Sun, sand and the ocean breeze.
The beauty of the ocean and the sound of the waves. Schools of dolphins and the sun shimmering on the water. The sand white and all sparkly. Cliffs with huge kites and people gliding over the blue water, round and round in circles in the sky.
A great place to meet all the people who live in the great city of San Diego. Even if you dont feel like taking a walk on its sandy beach you can take a roller coaster ride, Have a nice dinner and cocktail at one of its many resaurants or just walk the boardwalk and admire all the beachfront property inhabited by encentric locals
