Located about four miles from Coronado Village, Mission Beach is the midway point of "The Strand." Part of it lies on the Pacific; the other part frames the calm waters of San Diego Bay. Underground pedestrian tunnels connect the two halves, where beach lovers camp, swim, sail, fish, and picnic.

Rub shoulders with joggers, bicyclists, and in-line skaters competing for space on the three-mile-long boardwalk that links Pacific and Mission Beaches. The area is hopping 24/7, backed by streets thick with shops, restaurants, and bars. Head for Belmont Park, adjacent to Mission Beach, for a thrill. You can ride a roller coaster, plunge into a giant indoor swimming pool, or master your snowboarding maneuvers on the FlowRider platform.
