Loved walking on beach with hubby and the sunset was amazing into the endless sand road, but had return to our car, so had to turn around, a one way, no loop. You can make this walk anything you want, stop and take it in, Stop and play with friends, family, dog or lovers. Just an amazing place.

Mission Beach is just 10 minutes north of downtown San Diego. A great place to hang out or walk along the beach. We stayed near by on Sail Bay about 10 minute walk to the beach. Very comfortable and easy to get anywhere in SD area.

I LOVE visiting this place. So much to do, so much to easily walk to, so many good restaurants, yummy drinks, an amusement park, expansive beach with hours friendly for dogs (yay!) and beautiful place to take sunset pictures to hang on your wall and be amazed with! Perfect for flying your drone around too for awesome footage. People surf... More

My husband and I walked the boardwalk along the beach and really enjoyed it. We had a chance to see the beautiful sunset and our dogs really liked it as well. There are lots of restaurants and there is a little amusement park with a roller coaster. There's lots to see and do and people are really friendly. We have... More

The beach is so big, that you can spend hours just walking around it. The water is cool and clear. And the sunset is marvelous! Parking maybe a challenge, so be prepared to wait in line.

The water is warm and clear. By the beach there are several stores selling shirts representing the area. Most places you can chose your own print and style of shirt which is pretty cool! There's a roller coaster ect by the beach and a trail for biking and college skating. Very cultural. Lots of food available!

Stayed a block off the beach and could still hear the waves! Soft sand, wide beach, great waves, and a old-time amusement part at the end. Great place to be in the fall!!

You can take your pick of places for fun activities: the ocean, the beach or the strand way. You can easily rent bikes or skates to glide along the strand way darting people walking. If's friendly and even somewhat full on cold, damp days. Joggers seem to be present from dawn to dusk. You'll see surfing classes on the beach... More
