    Home of Belmont Park, miles long boardwalk, and a host of beachfront restaurants, MB is beach culture, through and through. Lay out a towel, soak in beautiful San Diego, grab a board and hop in!

    Don't miss out on this great beach! Whether you are grabbing a quick bite, going for a jog, or laying out in the sand with friends, this beach is sure to be fun for all.

    Paved walk populated by dipshit aging hippies holding wheelies on their bicycles. Better to walk the beach at surf's edge; more room to walk & nobody riding up your leg

    Great place to jog, walk, bike, blade or just sit and people watch. South Mission Jetty to Crystal Pier and back = 5.25 miles. Grab some food @ World Famous if you get hungry.

    The Giant Dipper, a classic, wooden roller coaster in Belmont Park along Mission Beach, is one of only two ocean-side coasters on the West Coast.

    We love the early evenings when the houses start turning their lights on. The boardwalk is positively beautiful for a stroll.

    In summer, on weekends, it's busiest between 11am and 3pm. No problem finding parking if you arrive before 11.

    Be sure to get there early. Parking is not fun. The boardwalk is nice but a little too crowded. I like the mini roller coaster tho.

    Watch for the Gestapo SDPD! They patrol vigorously for people smoking & drinking on the beach or boardwalk. Tickets are not cheap!! **BEWARE** Waste of tax dollars IMHO!!

    Thong bikinis are technically illegal on Mission Beach, which is both good and bad, depending on who might try to wear one.
