Mission Beach is a beach community of San Diego, with Pacific Beach to the North and Belmont Park to the South. Mission Beach offers a true Southern Californian way of life with surfing, bicycling, skateboarding, beach volleyball and roller-skating.
A 3 mile oceanfront boardwalk runs along both the ocean and bay sides of the community. Along the boardwalk you will find street-performers, restaurants, beach bars, nightclubs and surf shops. Many of our Mission Beach vacation homes are conveniently set right on the boardwalk.
Belmont Park is the center point of Mission Beach and your one-stop shop for action. Here you can ride the 73 foot tall Giant dipper, or the wooden roller coaster listed on the National Register of Historic Places. You could take a dip in the Plunge, an indoor swimming pool featuring the Whaling Wall. The Park also features a Wave House, Athletic Club and many restaurants.
SeaWorld San Diego and the San Diego Zoo are the most famous tourist attractions in Mission Beach, with over 200 acres of shows, rides and exotic animals. Introduce your children to wild animals from around the world at San Diego Zoo’s Safari Park.
