We stayed at a hotel right on this beach we enjoyed long walks on the beach, beach combing for sand dollars, making a sand sculpture, sunsets, people watching, surfer watching and visiting with other out of towners. The highlight was watching a seal riding inside...More
This is about a five mile stretch of ocean side biking, skating or walking boardwalk. It goes from South Mission Beach to Pacific Beach with funky restaurants, some shops and lots of people watching. It's beautiful and is only crowded in the height of summer....More
We stayed in the Catamaran Resort within walking distance. - which turned out to be good choice. After reading a lot of reviews we knew we wanted to be able to walk to various restaurants, etc. Staying on the edge of PB was perfect. There...More
Pacific Beach is beautiful, parking is expensive but it's worth paying for 3 to 5 hours which will allow you plenty of time to stroll along the sidewalk all the way to Mission Beach, stop for lunch/drinks and have some fun at Belmont Park.
I do not see why you would not be able to boogie boarding at this beach. I did not see any signs that indicate you can not on this beach. For sure, it's AWESOME for families. Even good for dudes with service dog. :)
Help - I am planning a vacation in March. My 3 yr old and my 60yr old inlaws will be with my husband and I. I would like to book a beach front condo/house. I have heard great reviews about Pacific Beach, but we seem to have a lot more choices of rentals in Mission Beach. Is there a big difference between the 2 areas? What are the differences? Thanks!

Personally, I prefer the PB area....just my opinion...you can rent on the ocean or you can rent overlooking the bay and there are nicer and cleaner walking areas. Just my 2 cents.

Hi... Two ladies, first time in SD, want to see Catalina Island, La Jolla, Coronado Island, a little time on the Pacific beach somewhere. We are not looking for the high end travel but not the lowest either. We will NOT have a car and need to know the ropes of getting around. Would staying on Coronado Island be more centralized for public trans. or staying downtown? Thanks much.

Staying downtown would be "more centralized" for public transportation than Coronado.
