Find a pet-friendly rental in Mission Beach

You truly are only steps from the beach when staying in a San Diego pet-friendly vacation rental in Mission Beach. Just like some of the rentals advertise, it will take you 30 seconds to get from your bed to the beach. While many of these rentals don’t have fenced-in yards for your dog, due to limited space, there are plenty of beach pathways and areas that you can take your dog for his exercise. Mission Beach is known for its gorgeous nature scenery, so taking your pup out for a walk will be a treat at any time of the day. Mission Beach is popular with the young adult crowd, yet also offers a lot of fun and activity for the entire family with places like Belmont Park.

Things to do

Ride with the tide in Mission Beach

Smack in the middle of Mission Beach, you'll find the historic Belmont Park, a beachfront amusement park that practically oozes old-timey charm. Visitors flock to the venerable Giant Dipper roller coaster, a lovably rickety 1925 contraption that's listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Plus, the park was originally built by sugar tycoon John D. Spreckels, so you can feel like you're eating a piece of history when you down that deep-fried Twinkie. Or you can head to nearby SeaWorld San Diego, where the aquarium, rides, and animal shows are a hit with visitors of all ages.

Activities

Mission Beach _ it's always happy hour at the sandbar

If fun in the sun is your idea of a good time, then you've come to the right place. Mission Beach has almost 2 miles of broad, sandy shoreline along the Pacific, and you can enjoy everything from surfing and kayaking to jetskiing and boating. Good, old-fashioned sunbathing is always an option, too, and the south end of the beach offers bonfire pits and a rocky jetty for fishing. Feeling adventurous? Strap on your scuba gear and check out the shipwrecks just offshore, purpose-sunk to create an artificial reef that's popular with divers.

Weather

Mission Beach, San Diego _ here comes the sun

Like the rest of San Diego, Mission Beach has a mediterranean climate, which means warm summers, mild winters, and plenty of sunny days all year round _ the city only sees about 21 days with rain in them annually. Average summer highs peak at 76 degrees in August and September, while winter highs generally crest around 65 between December and March. Since the weather is sunny and pleasant throughout the year, you'll find that prices for Mission Beach vacation rentals don't change much from one season to the next.

Natural features

Mission Beach _ you're gonna hear me shore

In case the name didn't tip you off, Mission Beach is exactly that _ nearly 2 miles of broad, sandy beach along San Diego's sunny Pacific coast. To the east, the salty Mission Bay lagoon boasts number of islands, and the San Diego River lies just to the south. The Kendall-Frost Mission Bay Marsh Reserve features 20 acres of wetlands where you can spot clapper rails and other shorebirds, as well as plenty of raccoons and feral cats. With a Mission Beach vacation rental, one of California's most unique ecosystems will be right outside your door.
