Great to be on the Pacific Ocean

Lots of shops and people watching great to just get a towel or beach chair and enjoy the sun and surf.

Mission Beach is a big , wide, California Beach. When we were there the surge was up and there were rip tide warnings so you couldnt go in the water. There is an amusement park called Belmont Park which is a step back to yester year of Beach front attractions. It has the oldest wooden roller coaster on the west... More

We walked to this beach from our friends' home which was nearby & understood the love of Surfing! Soft sand, sun, the salty ocean waters & a short distance away the harbor... This isn't particularly the most scenic beach but it's very functional & nice.

It is good beach. A lot of people. A good variety of food, shops and bars. Parking is free. Good place to spend the day in and near the water.

We visited Mission Beach a couple of times while in the area. I loved the boardwalk that runs along the beach. It was nice to take a walk along the ocean and not have to walk in the sand. You just better beware that it can be busy with people on bikes, skateboards, etc. The beach itself was nice. I'm... More

Bring your towel and boogie board to the hottest beach in San Diego! You will find miles of soft sand and plenty of waves to ride!

Likely not the prettiest beach, but because Belmont Park sits at the edge of it and it has a boardwalk that takes you along the shore to Pacific Beach, we love it. It's a long and interesting walk past all kinds of rental houses. People bike, run and skateboard along and that adds to its draw for us. A friend... More

The shops in Belmont Park were under construction so there weren't many shops to walk through. The beach was nice so if you're looking to sit in the sand all day, this would be a good spot. If you're coming for a boardwalk walk, then maybe wait until construction is finished down there. Quick tip, if you're calling an uber... More

Mission Beach - Beautiful beach and scenery. Great for a day trip or weekend getaway. Come watch surfers, windsurfers, wave runners, etc. Close to lots of attractions, including Sea World, Seaport Village, Old Town & downtown San Diego.
