Clean beach with very vibrant crowd. The beach gets packed so come with patience. The sand and water is gorgeous. The crowd seems like a college town and there were few families hanging out but worth the visit. Parking was easy too and if you want gifts go to the 'wings' gift shop.

Surprising clean, and very nice beach. Love the boardwalk - as you can look at the view without burning your feet on the hot sand.

We've been to San Diego numerous times over the last several decades and had never been to Mission Bay. We stayed in a vacation rental condo in Sail Bay, Fanuel Park. We found the bay beautiful, beaches were well kept, great for families. Rented water sports equipment at the Catamaran Hotel ... that worked out very well.

Very lively and energetic experience - not a lot of drama as most people are happy to be at the beach! Remember no glass containers, and during holiday periods, they often restrict alcohol - big fines if they catch you with either.

We were staying close to Mission Beach so we would go down here almost daily to walk the beach, boardwalk and check out the shops and restaurants. It was very relaxing to have breakfast on the beach each morning. Great place to relax, maybe next time we will try a vacation rental down there!

Beautiful San Diego beach. Fun in the sun and lots to do and enjoy. It's great for relaxing, and there are plenty activities for active families.

Mission Beach was pretty packed but over all nice. The day we went it was extremely hot. I think it was around 102. So our time there was short. We had a difficult time finding places to eat. We finally found some around the amusement park area.

Came to Mission Beach to see the beautiful sunset. There was a lot of seaweed but otherwise it was very clean and nice. Had a great time!
