Mission Beach Community
The community of Mission Beach is nestled on a sandbar between Pacific Beach and Mission Bay. The San Diego River estuary defines its southern boundary, where the fresh river water spills into the bay. Its geographic location lends itself to sandy soil, making it difficult to build commercial and residential developments. As a result, Mission Beach’s oldest structures date back to the 1920s. Early builders had a difficult time building stable homes on Mission Beach’s sandy land, so many projects were shelved until better building techniques had been established. In a successful attempt to bolster the Mission Beach housing market, small land lots primed for development were sold for a very low price in 1914. As a result, the homes in this area are packed close together, making it one of the densest housing developments in San Diego. A main thoroughfare, Mission Boulevard, which divides the community into North Mission and South Mission, bisects Mission Beach. The southern end of the community is home to a jetty that extends into the ocean, making it a popular place to visit on a sunny afternoon.
Living in Mission Beach
Mission Beach, and the nearby Pacific Beach, is filled with fun things to see and do. As their names would imply, their white sandy beaches cover almost 4 miles. This is the perfect spot to enjoy the beautiful weather and take a walk, swim, or sun bathe. These beaches are covered with seashells and sand dollars during low tide, so if you like to collect those kinds of things, the beaches are vacation spots that you will not want to miss. Belmont Park is the typical tourist beach, but it is popular with locals as well and is definitely worth a visit. One of Belmont Park’s claims to fame is its wooden roller coaster - The Giant Dipper - that is the 2nd oldest of its kind in the United States. Belmont Park also includes a popular merry go round, a simulated surf ride, and an arcade. The food options are varied and include everything from sit down restaurants to smaller stands where you can grab a quick bite to eat. The boardwalk area overlooks the ocean and is home to a diverse selection of shops that sell everything from surfboards to clothing. There is even a spot to rent bikes, surfboards, and boogie boards for the day. Renting a bike can be a great way to explore Mission Beach. Some of the best oceanfront bars and restaurants are most easily reached by bike. This list includes Lahaina’s Beach House Bar and Grill, an establishment that is consistently ranked as one of San Diego’s best spots to eat and drink on the beach. Its outdoor patio lets patrons enjoy a cool sea breeze while enjoying food from a diverse menu and drinks from a fully stocked bar. If spending time on the water is your thing, don’t miss the Bahia Belle - a paddleboat that takes nighttime cruises along Mission Beach and Pacific Beach. The beautiful surroundings meld with the live music to provide a relaxing evening with friends or a starlit night of romance.
