A fun and free-spirited, beach community, Mission Beach spans nearly 2 miles of ocean front. As part of the city of San Diego, Mission Beach is built on a sandbar between the Pacific Ocean and Mission Bay. It borders part of Pacific Beach and shares the same zip code (92109).

Mission Bay – San Diego, California

Of course the near-perfect Mediterranean climate is in full force here too – warm, dry summers with highs in mid 70’s and lows in mid 60’s, with little rain or humidity all year round.

Mission Beach is the most densely developed residential community in San Diego with a city-mandated, land-use designation limiting the number of homes to only 36 dwelling units per acre. It also has the smallest lots in the city, ranging from 1,250 square feet (116 sq. meters) to 2,400 square feet (220 sq. meters).

It is bordered by the San Diego River estuary on the south, Mission Bay Park on the east, and the community of Pacific Beach on the north. A boardwalk runs along the beaches on both the ocean and bay sides of the community.
