You’ve finally arrived in Mission Beach, signed up for your surf lessons with Mission Beach Surfing School and now what? What’s next? This blog is simply going to give you all of our recommendations for activities, restaurants and more in Mission Beach.
Depending on the age groups in your party a few activities may intrigue some more than others. Let’s start off with food. For breakfast, our ultimate favorite would definitely be The Mission. The Mission specializes in simple, healthy, tasty food with a whimsical edge and a focus on an artful presentation at an affordable price. For all those not too concerned about their waistline… You need to try the french toast and/or pancakes. They are to die for. And if you’re one of those health conscious people I recommend taking a cheat day. Because once you finish up with that cheat meal you can walk out of the restaurant and walk right over to Cheap Rentals and ride a bike up and down the Mission Beach Boardwalk. This is easily one of our top recommendations for a leisure activity that surely will not disappoint. During the summer the boardwalk can get a bit busier but is still equally inviting. Rent a couple beach cruisers and just enjoy the ocean breeze and sunshine while working off a few pieces of french toast. Once you’re hungry again we have two places we think you should check out for lunch. Rubicon Deli and Miss B’s Coconut Club. Rubicon Deli is known for its health consciousness and California grown produce. Sandwiches that are bigger than your forearm also bring customers from all over the world. If you’re looking for something more, we urge you to check out Miss B’s Coconut Club. Miss B’s Coconut Club is a revival of Mission Beach’s colorful past. If you are looking for a cold Rum filled drink in a fun tropical cup, Miss B’s is the spot for you. Once your lunch is over, get back on that bike and head over to Belmont Park. Belmont Park has something for every age. Perfect for a date or to take the kids and let them run wild. I will say, I have been to many amusement parks and even though the roller coaster looks like it was made in 1920 it is a blast! Grab a waffle cone and ride some bumper cars or even win a big stuffed animal for your crush! Regardless the activity it is guaranteed you’ll walk out of there with a smile. After checking out Belmont Park get back on that bike you rented and cruise over to Mission Bay. Mission Bay has a variety of things to offer. We recommend renting a paddleboard or two and taking a nice sunset paddle. After you get a nice workout in from that paddle head back over to Mission Beach and check out one of our two favorite dinner spots, Cannonball or Draft. Conveniently they are on top of/underneath one another. Cannonball offers delicious inventive sushi and California cuisine inspired by Pacific Rim influences. The oceanfront restaurant is also serving up the best view in San Diego! Head up to the rooftop restaurant and sip on refreshing beach craft cocktails while soaking up the essence of the beach. If that doesn’t tickle your fancy, head downstairs and check out the biggest flat screen tv’s you’ve ever laid eyes on a grab a craft beer and a juicy burger. Hopefully, this blog has given you a better grasp on Mission Beach and maybe hyped you up a bit on the different activities and restaurants that are waiting for you!
