  • We had a house just on Mission Bay rd. 2 minutes away from Boardwalk. Either in the morning and at sunset you can spend a lot of time walking or running along the ocean. Wonderful.  more »
  • This beach had many things to offer a visitor like a one stop shop. You should try the loaded fries from Mr.Ruribertos so delicious it can feed 2-3. We also stop to buy the family members back home a ...  more »
  • I love a morning ride down the boardwalk toward South Mission Beach. The ocean is so calm early in the morning, and often you can see surfers and occasionally a dolphin or sea lion in the surf. It's n...  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.
