A two-mile concrete boardwalk runs the length of the beachfront where people promenade, bike, and skate ending at the Mission Beach channel breakwater and jetty. There surfers enjoy the surf break and fishermen fish off its rocks, while sports fishing charter boats pass by in and out of the Mission Bay harbor basin.
Many boutique hotels, beach cottages, apartment, luxury homes and condos can be found here for rent or sale in this compact community. Bounded on the land side by the communities of Pacific Beach on the north, and Ocean Beach on the south - it has the smallest lots in the city ranging from 1,250 to 2,400 square feet which result in it having the highest density in the city with 36 units per acre.
With the Pacific Ocean for a front yard and Mission Bay Park for a backyard one doesn’t need a large estate sized property here. Though Mission Beach and Mission Bay are enjoyed by millions of locals and tourists each year, the immense scale of its surrounding parks, beaches, bays and ocean allows one to have ones own space to breathe and retreat into.
Mission Beach is San Diego’s most popular beach attracting visitors and residents that are especially active. Some former residents include: Olympic Volleyball players and medal winners Lloyd Ball, Pat Gallagher, and Pat Powers; True Crime Author Cathy Scott, San Diego Charger football players, and billionaire newspaper publisher David C. Copley.
