Beautiful beach like all of the CA beaches but this comes with a small amusement park. Great if you have kids. A few t shirt shops and a Starbucks. The crowd is young teens and scantily clad. A little bit low grade. I prefer Ocean...More

It was a Tuesday. Nearly empty. Volleyball nets set up (bring your own ball). Excellent sand. Some surfers, lots of waders. Rock pier is easy to scramble around on. Fire pits.

I was a bit skittish about Mission Beach for its reputation as a 20 something's hangout. But I found it surprisingly fun place to hang with your family with teenagers.

This is a really nice beach to visit. It’s very clean with a great boardwalk with lots of spots to grab some ice cream, etc. I had a great time enjoying the sun and beautiful weather. People watching is fun here too.

It can get a little crowded during the summer season, but it's still a nice area to spend some time in the sun.
