I stayed about a block away. I visited the beach twice while there and both times wanted to spend more time. There is a paved area where you can bike, jog, walk, or skate as well. Was there during the week and it was not too crowded.

Drove down after a day at Seaworld looking for a nice beach restaurant. while trying to find a parking spot, we watched as a gang fight broke out... We left for La Jolla.

It is a great beach to lounge, make sand castles, go for a walk or run or have a meal a a neighboring restaurant.

We visited this beach on a windy afternoon at sunset. Still enjoyed the beautiful scenery. Lots of people were there too. A nice beach to visit.

Had a great afternoon here relaxing in the sun, people watching then watching the sunset! Great place to hire a body board as its cheap and easy and the waves are friendly! Can be a bit crowded but not too bad

This is a great place to go for fun in the sun. You can sit in the sun, swim, boogie board, ride a bike, walk, and enjoy rides at Belmont park. Parking is free and there are miles of beach to enjoy. We also enjoyed sitting at one on the beach side restaurants watching everyone go by. Lots of fun!

Loved the beach, waves, etc had a womderful day. A bit difficult to access the beach when one is unfamiliar with the area. Better signage would help.

I really like San Diego, it has some very nice beach front areas and Mission Beach was beautiful while we were there.

There is so much to do here from surfing, boogie boarding to kayaking and paddle boarding.. You can even go ride roller coasters at Belmont park all without getting in your car and then just around the corner is Seaworld! Lots of great restaurants and quaint shops! Fireworks from the bay every night. Super fun place to be to enjoy... More
