Mission Beach aligns with the Pacific Ocean on the west and Mission Bay on the east. This is a central spot for all outdoor water activities - windsurfing, boating, kayaking and particularly surfing. The average age of residents is 25 to 34 years old so it is very popular with singles.
A central component of Mission Beach is Mission Bay, a saltwater bay or lagoon located south of the Pacific Beach community of San Diego, California. The bay is part of the recreational Mission Bay Park, which is the largest man-made aquatic park in the country, consisting of 4,235 acres (17.14 km2), approximately 46% land and 54% water. The combined area makes Mission Bay Park the ninth largest municipally-owned park in the United States. Mission Bay Park was originally a tidal marsh that was named “False Bay” by Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo in 1542. It was developed into a recreational water park during the 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s.
Mission Beach is located conveniently about halfway between downtown San Diego and UCSD, about a fifteen minute drive to campus.
