Create an itinerary including Mission Beach Park
Settle into a fun, carnival-like atmosphere at Mission Beach Park, where you can swim, lounge on the sand all day, or wander the area. You'll find plenty of food stands, bars, and street performers, and some fine-dining restaurants as well. You can surf, play sports, join beach boot camps, and even ride a rollercoaster or artificial waves. The mood is calmer at the opposite end of the beach, which features fishing spots and underwater shipwrecks you can explore. Parking spots are hard to find; buses and bikes are better options.

  • The beach is wide and the ‘boardwalk’ very well traveled even in the off February offseason. There are many bars, a few restaurants, and other beach stores. It’s a lovely walk if that’s all that...
