Destination guide

Find waterfront fun with a Pacific Beach apartment for rent

Pacific Beach is one of the most iconic destinations in the entire Mission Beach area. While primarily popular with young college students and surfers, the older generations are adding an air of affluence. That means you can enjoy all the thrills of a surfing beach alongside high-end clothing stores and restaurants. Given its appeal to college students, however, booking an apartment for rent near Mission Beach won't require you to break the bank. Additionally, this region makes it easy to access Mission Bay Park and surrounding natural areas, all perfect for mountain biking and hiking.

 
Things to do

Tourist attractions near Pacific Beach vacation rentals

Visitors and year-round residents alike know how to enjoy the simple things: sand, sun, and sea views, but your Pacific Beach vacation rental will be close to some major attractions as well. SeaWorld San Diego is just a couple miles south in Mission Bay, and its animal habitats, rides, and shows are designed to fascinate marine enthusiasts of all ages. Sidle west of SeaWorld and you'll be in Belmont Park, right on the water. This vintage amusement park has arcade games, a zip line, and a throwback roller coaster built in 1925.

Activities

Things to do near Pacific Beach vacation homes

It would be a shame to show up in P.B. and shun the outdoors, so get out there. Pacific Beach itself is the most popular and has plenty of watering holes nearby. North Pacific Beach is a quieter stretch, backed by cliffs up to 75 high that prop up its scenic boardwalk. At its north end is Tourmaline Surfing Park, reserved for surfers, windsurfers, and kite boarders. Kate Sessions Park is further inland and the perfect place for a bike ride with a view, while Fanuel Park on the bay is ideal for picnicking and kayaking.

Weather

Local weather near your Pacific Beach summer rental

Visitors can enjoy the Pacific Beach beaches year-round. The best weather for sunbathing and ocean swimming will grace you from July to October, when highs are in the 70s or 80s and water temps are around 70°F. The winter and spring are a little less reliable, with lows in the 40s and 50s, and occasional rain, but the emphasis here is on occasional. Sunny days are the norm in P.B. If you'd like to snag a Pacific Beach vacation rental and stick to a tighter budget, book during winter and beat the crowds.

Natural features

See rabbits, rare birds, and watch out for a rattlesnake

Set on the Pacific Ocean, just north of Mission Bay and cut by the Rose Creek Watershed, Pacific Beach is surrounded by wetlands, marine plant life, and the creatures who love them. The Kendall-Frost Mission Bay Marsh Reserve, on the south side of P.B., offers high marsh and mudflats, and is home to one of California's rarest birds, the light-footed clapper rail. Kate Sessions Park, further inland, has a wild side, too, and hikers can spot squirrels, rabbits, and rattlesnakes under a mix of native and exotic trees.
