  • Mission Beach is easily accessible by public transportation from downtown (trolley + bus). Nice promenade facing the sea: on foot, by bike, skateboard, seagway, jogging, inline... The beach is very nice because very few people saw the scope. A few restaurants at the ends of the boardwalk. Shop beach too. A lot of holiday rental in seaside: House, apartment. A nice glacier: ocean's ice cream. Fantastic afternoon with the Sun, the sand and the sea...

  • Own a waterfront beautiful, full of bikes, tandem, skateboarding and everything that moves. Really long and very popular. Also walk with the trust and the sea in the vicinity is truly magical

  • We walked along most of the board walk and enjoyed it. The walk is easy to do and used by joggers, cyclists, parents with buggies, those in wheelchairs and is rightly popular.  more »

  • I didn't like Mission Beach. I was disappointed because I heard this was supposed to be a a must see beach in California. I think Santa Monica is nicer than this beach! It's very crowded - expect lots of young families, teens, young adults, loud music, and the smell of weed. The shore is very dirty. There was a soiled diaper left behind by a family. Lots if trash everywhere. Because the beach is very narrow, there's hardly a relaxing space to set up. This is a party/ teen beach. Don't go here if you're looking to relax and unwind. I'm so glad I didn't book my beach getaway hotel here!
  • Great place to hang out. Great places for drinks and food. Nice to rent bikes and cruise the beach minus the 4th of July crowd which made it difficult to actually ride since people think they own the entire walk way.
  • This boardwalk never gets old. It was a perfect summer spot to visit. I found parking so that I could stroll and take in the sights.
  • This boardwalk is awesome. The beach is pretty, there is a lot of exciting stuff going on. I always recommend my friends visit this place.
  • Pretty cool. Easy to find by the Beach, huge variety of games & rides, inexpensive Video Games, & friendly staff.

Where to stay in San Diego

Offering accommodations at a wide range of price levels, San Diego is one of the easiest cities to stay in, regardless of whether you're simply passing through or hanging around for a long vacation. If you don't mind splurging, book your stay at a luxury downtown hotel or a lavish bayside resort. You can also rent a spacious private cottage within walking distance of the city's popular beaches. For a more affordable alternative, try a family-friendly hostel or quaint inn in a quiet residential area.
