About South Mission Beach in San Diego, California

South Mission Beach is at the extreme south end of the Mission Beach Peninsula at the Mission Bay Channel Entrance. There is a grass park there with picnic tables, restrooms, and a basketball court. On the sand next to the park are many beach volleyball courts. The beach at this location is very wide so you won’t have a problem finding a spot to spread out on. A huge lifeguard building watches guard over this end of Mission Beach.

To reach South Mission Beach head south on Mission Boulevard to the end and turn right into a large parking lot. This lot fills up so plan on getting here early in the day. The Ocean Front Walk pathway starts here and continues north along the back of the beach all the way to Mission Beach and ends around Pacific Beach. Mission Point Park is at the east end of the jetty just walking distance from South Mission Beach.
