Mission Beach vacation rentals

It's all within your reach in Mission Beach

Set on a sandy spit of land between Mission Bay and the Pacific Ocean, Mission Beach is a laid-back beach town with a serious maxing and relaxing thing going on. Visitors flock to the area for its 2 miles of boardwalk, old-timey amusement park, and beachfront dining. Always popular with the spring break crowd (even when it's not, you know, springtime), you'll find there's always something lively happening around a Mission Beach vacation rental _ whether that's a beach volleyball tournament or an all-night beer pong marathon, it's certainly never a dull moment.

Mission Beach _ it's always happy hour at the sandbar

If fun in the sun is your idea of a good time, then you've come to the right place. Mission Beach has almost 2 miles of broad, sandy shoreline along the Pacific, and you can enjoy everything from surfing and kayaking to jetskiing and boating. Good, old-fashioned sunbathing is always an option, too, and the south end of the beach offers bonfire pits and a rocky jetty for fishing. Feeling adventurous? Strap on your scuba gear and check out the shipwrecks just offshore, purpose-sunk to create an artificial reef that's popular with divers.

Ride with the tide in Mission Beach

Smack in the middle of Mission Beach, you'll find the historic Belmont Park, a beachfront amusement park that practically oozes old-timey charm. Visitors flock to the venerable Giant Dipper roller coaster, a lovably rickety 1925 contraption that's listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Plus, the park was originally built by sugar tycoon John D. Spreckels, so you can feel like you're eating a piece of history when you down that deep-fried Twinkie. Or you can head to nearby SeaWorld San Diego, where the aquarium, rides, and animal shows are a hit with visitors of all ages.

Mission Beach, San Diego _ here comes the sun

Like the rest of San Diego, Mission Beach has a mediterranean climate, which means warm summers, mild winters, and plenty of sunny days all year round _ the city only sees about 21 days with rain in them annually. Average summer highs peak at 76 degrees in August and September, while winter highs generally crest around 65 between December and March. Since the weather is sunny and pleasant throughout the year, you'll find that prices for Mission Beach vacation rentals don't change much from one season to the next.

Mission Beach _ you're gonna hear me shore

In case the name didn't tip you off, Mission Beach is exactly that _ nearly 2 miles of broad, sandy beach along San Diego's sunny Pacific coast. To the east, the salty Mission Bay lagoon boasts number of islands, and the San Diego River lies just to the south. The Kendall-Frost Mission Bay Marsh Reserve features 20 acres of wetlands where you can spot clapper rails and other shorebirds, as well as plenty of raccoons and feral cats. With a Mission Beach vacation rental, one of California's most unique ecosystems will be right outside your door.
