This is a beautiful, long, clean yellow sand beach that never feels crowded even on a busy day. There is a nice pier and on a cloudy day, if you're lucky, the dolphins and whales will come near enough to be spotted from the beach....More
Pacific beach location is a wonderful area for family and couples. There are so many restaurants in the area and so many things to do you really don’t have to have a car but if you want to get around to visit other areas you...More
We stayed for a few days in a VRBO condo right on the water! The beach was great, not overcrowded, some bigger waves for surfing were a plus.The town was great, we loved the Cinnamon roll place for breakfast, the Pizza was wonderful! and we...More
Great place to drive, walk, scooter, etc. The restaurants, dives, shops in town. But the best is the boardwalk. Park and walk and walk and walk. The best people watching anywhere. Eat and drink at one of the great restaurants then walk out on the...More
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.

I still LOVE the location of the Catamaran and think that the bay views and proximity to ocean is more important than the...More

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.
