Pacific/Mission Beach

Welcome to Pacific/Mission Beach

Hip beach town with an urban feel

These two neighborhoods embody the California lifestyle. They share a boardwalk along the pristine beaches that they’re named after, beckoning surfers, vacationers, and college students to their shores. This hip coastal destination is perfect for those seeking a beautiful beach with a side of nightlife. There are incredible waterfront properties on both the bay and ocean waterfronts, with many homes dating back to the 1930s. The views from these residences are stunning, and no matter what end of the boardwalk you find yourself, you’re always close to wonderful restaurants and shops.

People & Lifestyle 

Though they’re alike in many ways, there is a definitive atmosphere shift between the two neighborhoods. Mission Beach is a more relaxed beach environment, making it ideal for families, while Pacific Beach has an incredible nightlife and more amenities. 

Full of college-age young adults and vacationers, Mission and Pacific Beaches have an air of excitement that only comes with forgetting your cares for a week or two. The residents of these neighborhoods are laid back and welcoming to both new neighbors and visitors. Rising home prices in the area have transformed this from a casual surf town into a hip, affluent area.


Dining, Entertainment & Shopping 

A stroll along the boardwalk will take you past quaint boutiques and beachy shops. Almost everywhere you go offers beautiful ocean views, and restaurants bring unparalleled freshness to their seafood offerings.

South Coast Surf Shop has a fully-stocked inventory of surfboards and wetsuits available to buy or rent. Sun Diego Boardshop has clothes and gear for stylish surfers and skaters. For high-end, fashionable swimwear, visit Gone Bananas Beachwear.

Tower23 hotel’s onsite restaurant, JRDN, is worth dining at even if you’re not a hotel guest. The ocean views are only matched by the fresh seafood and tantalizing side dishes. For incredible waterfront dining, check out World Famous and Waterbar, and let Costa Brava transport you to Spain with live flamenco music and authentic cuisine. Saska’s is San Diego’s original steakhouse. You won’t find any fancy gimmicks here —  just hearty steak cooked to perfection and classic cocktails that you’ll dream about for months.


Things to Do 

Pacific Beach and Mission Beach love a good party. There’s plenty of nightlife that extends beyond the typical bar scene, and during the day, there’s an abundance of fun to be had.

Pacific Beachfest is a free festival on the boardwalk every October and is worth traveling in for — or, if you live in the area, it’s worth playing tourist for! Events include a 5K and a beach volleyball tournament. If you’re just here for the food, there’s a beer garden and a fish taco competition that will fill you right up. Beach House hosts a summer concert series featuring an epic lineup of big-name artists and DJs.

​​​​​​​If you’re seeking a water adventure, look no further than Mission Bay Sportscenter. They rent powerboats, wave runners, jetpacks, and sailboats. They also have a variety of youth camps that take place over the summer. Spend a thrilling day on the beachfront roller coasters at Belmont Park. Mission Bay Golf Course is the only stadium-lit golf course in San Diego, so you can head out for a game after sunset.
