Mission Beach San Diego has always been one of the most popular beach communities in San Diego and Southern California. Developed by business tycoon John Spreckels in the early 1920’s, this 3 mile beach peninsula was always set to provide the ideal beach life for locals and visitors alike.

San Diego beaches draw an estimated 26 million yearly visitors and Mission Beach is one of the main destinations for tourists and visitors. Mission Beach sits right below Pacific Beach and
right above Ocean Beach.

The beach itself is a peninsula about 3 miles in length and only about 2 blocks wide with Mission Bay providing over 4,000 acres of parks and wetlands to the east.

Because Mission Beach has beaches on both sides (the boardwalk on the ocean and beaches on Mission Bay on the other side) , it is able to accomodate large crowds and plenty of family’s and visitors through out the year. Picnics and get togethers are common with surfing and rollerblading down the boardwalk are as popular as walking and boogie boarding.

Mission Beach has an estimated population of about 3,800 residents and about 20 percent of the properties are used as vacation rentals during the summertime months.

Mission Beach provides some great entertainment for visitors including Belmont (Amusement) Park, which features a host of great rides including the 80+ year old The Giant Dipper Roller Coaster. Belmont Park is also home to The Wave House which features a 10 foot man made wave machine, great lunches and views of the beach and the boardwalk. Canes Bar and Grill is also at Belmont Park and provides a great lunch and also live music 5 nights a week right on the boardwalk.

Mission Beach is by far the most popular beach in San Diego due to it’s prestine beaches, boardwalks and local eateries. For guests and visitors looking to visit Mission Beach www.MissionBeachOnline.com is known as one of the best online resources.
