Mission Beach is a beautiful neighborhood in San Diego. It is located on a narrow strip of land between the ocean and Mission Bay, only a few blocks wide. The classic boardwalk beach town has nearly two miles of oceanfront boardwalk, numerous rental shops, and Belmont Park, an amusement park located on the boardwalk, featuring the Giant Dipper Roller Coaster, built in 1925 and restored today, the Beach House Grill, bumper cars, rock climbing, and miniature golf.
Mission Beach spans nearly two miles of oceanfront. On the south, it is bordered by the San Diego River estuary, on the east by Mission Bay Park, and on the north by Pacific Beach. A boardwalk runs along the beach on the ocean and bay sides of the community. Mission Boulevard is the main artery through Mission Beach. The community has three parts: South Mission, a peninsula, and North Mission. The south end of the beach has a jetty with grass, parking, and a walkway.
Here are some stunning photos that show people enjoying at the Mission Beach in August 1970 by Lance Nix.
I went down and spent a week with my cousin living in the Mission Bay beach community. After surfing with my beach air mat for a couple of days I took a break and just took pictures.
