MISSION BEACH

Beaches Index

Mission Beach

General:
This is one of the most fun beaches in the City of San Diego. And no wonder... the activites here are endless. The beach, aka the Strand, is nearly 2 miles long, begins at the Mission Bay channel entrance and ends at the north end of Pacific Beach. Part of the beach faces the ocean, and part faces the bay. A boardwalk extends for nearly 3 miles along the beach and around Mission Bay. This is a fantastic beach for the kids because of all the water and land activities available, plus the swimming and surfing areas are separated. About the only thing at this beach that is not great is scuba diving. No sea critters lurking here. South Mission Beach is volleyball heaven.

Activities:
Beach: Swimming, sunbathing, body boarding, surfing, volleyball, kayaking, picnicking, sandcastle building and more volleyball.

Boardwalk:
The Mission Beach boardwalk has been widened with designated lanes for walking and riding. Nearly 3 miles long, activities include: skateboarding, skating, rollerblading, bicycling, jogging, running, walking.

Facilities:
Lifeguard: (year-round) station at the foot of Ventura Street beside a landmark roller coaster. In summer, additional lifeguards are staffed along the beach in seasonal lifeguard towers. Lifeguards are generally on duty from 9am to dusk.

Restrooms & Showers:

at the south side of Belmont Park
across from the Mission Beach lifeguard station (north) at the commercial mall

From I-5, exit Grand Avenue, westbound to Mission Boulevard. Take Mission Boulevard south to West Mission Bay Drive. At this point West Mission Bay Dr west of Mission Blvd becomes Ventura Pl.

South Mission Beach

General:
At the south end Mission Beach, aka South Mission Beach, is a jetty, a grassy area, parking, and a walk that extends into the ocean. This is a popular place to engage in beach volleyball and basketball. A popular game similar to baseball called "Over-The-Line" is allowed in a portion of this area. South Mission Beach is bordered on the south by the Mission Bay Channel, and is possibly the widest beach in the City. This beach has separate water areas reserved for swimming and surfing. This beach area is also not recommended for scuba diving due heavy surf and lack of undersea life.
