About Mission Beach

Where fun in the sun is most alive, Mission Beach is San Diego's most active and unique beach. San Diego is renowned for its beaches, but none are quite like Mission Beach. Built on a sandbar between the Mission Bay and the Pacific Ocean, Mission Beach is a small yet sweet community possessing some of the city's most iconic beachside attractions. The water is always perfect for a swim year round, but the list of things to do doesn't just start or stop at the ocean as Mission Beach is quick to prove what makes it special. Take a trip to the legendary beachfront amusement park, Belmont Park, or try yourself against the only artificial wave machine in San Diego at The FlowBarrel.

Getting Around Mission Beach

Around Mission Beach

Mission Beach offers a variety of home styles, all just steps away from the water. Directly on Mission Boulevard is where the bulk of the houses are located, and these range from modest single family homes to upscale and private townhomes and condos. And none lack a panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean because most of Mission Beach's attractions are located within its two mile stretch of sand.

Mission Beach loves food, more specifically it loves the kind of food that is best enjoyed with a local craft beer and inside a restaurant with big windows to absorb the San Diego sun. The scent of the ocean pairs perfectly with modern seafood inspired dishes signature to the area, the fish taco, which found its conception in San Diego is well represented as restaurants in the area compete for the most true and flavorful rendition of the San Diego classic. The culinary scene in Mission Beach is designed with the purpose to bring your food to the beach with fork and knife in hand and toes in the sand. But don't be mistaken, as upscale seafood restaurants are still present, as is the theme in San Diego.

Everything you love about going to the beach and then some. On the beach itself you'll see beachgoers playing volleyball, sunbathing, and families gathered around umbrellas taking in the scene. While farther inland you'll find the pedestrian friendly layout of beach shops, restaurants, and bars that don't mind tank tops and flip-flops.

With bars and restaurants open late night that embody the laid-back attitude that Mission Beach employs, there is no shortage of options for a Friday night. And with every major establishment within a small radius of one another, a short flip-flop walk can take you from a sports bar with a balcony to a beach lounge where sand meets shots. The beach never closes for a late night dip into the cool water, and Mission Bay is close by for a night's bonfire. Live music from the nation's biggest touring acts is also close at Humphrey's Concerts by the bay.

Where the beach has everything you could want for a perfect Sunday, the pathway parallel to the ocean has a great variety of activities for couples, families, and single adventurers. The Boardwalk is where you'll find runners and pedestrians rollerblading, riding bikes, riding beach cruisers, and other fun modes of transportation. A collection of surf shops are ready to rent out their boards to surfers looking to catch a wave, but if the waves of the beach just don't cut for you The WaveHouse is Mission Beach's newest daring attraction. Imagine the perfect never ending wave at the WaveHouse, with its artificial wave that tourists and surfing world champions alike try to conquer. However full a perfect Sunday might already seem, without a trip to the historic Belmont Park the day is only half full. Opened in 1925, this amusement park has withstood the changing times and landscape of San Diego while retaining the foundation of fun that it originally was built upon.
