Our favorite beach in San Diego. Great kayaking around vacation island. Just watch out in the no speed zone.

We were at Belmont Park and walked to Mission Bay where we rented kayak and the water bike. Such a beautiful place!! This park has a lot of grassy areas, shade trees, beaches and walking distance to Belmont Park.

Mission Bay Park, San Diego , CA - a great spot for any water activity such as wave surfing, body surfing, jet skiing, etc. A beautiful area and beach, close to downtown and Old Town San Diego, Sea World, Wild Animal Park, shopping, restaurants, etc. A great day trip or weekend getaway.

Love the weather at San Diego. The sky was clear and the sun shone all the time we were in San Diego (unlike San Francisco, it was always cloudy when we were there).

Recently spent time at Mission Bay Park. It is family friendly and the dogs love hanging out there. Always a good time to kick back and have a picnic.

Great place for sailing, paddle boarding, and kayaking. Water is perfectly flat for all of the calm activities. Great space for picnic or grilling. Get there early if you need to set up a tarp or tent. It will fill up fast when the weather is nice.

Cool shops and local farmer's market in the area--however-not for little kids late at night--very crowded and a little bit dirty. My adult children had a good time--other beaches in the area are much nicer. Bathrooms are disgusting.

This park was only a few minutes from our motel. What a beautiful and relaxing time we had walking the park and the beach. There was kayaking, wind surfing, etc. which enhanced this beautiful place. This was a great find on our vacation. Gene Parker Coplay PA

I remember going here in my teens. The roller coaster was always the attraction. The park has great rides to give the kiddos and a few adult style rides. We walk there from our beach house rental. It's was fun for the night. You have to go once. And the shopping is fun too!
