It was ok, but reminded us of Coney Island N.Y. MISSION BAY PARK was pretty. The beach around Bahia resort was much nicer.

The weather was grate the day we went it was about 69-75 few days after Christmas. The water was still cold but warm enough soak your feet. Spent most of the time walking along the beach while the lady looked for sea shells.

We stayed a block away at the Catamaran but really enjoyed walking the boardwalk, out the pier and playing in the sand. Great restaurants for watching the sun set over the ocean. Our fave was El Prez.

Mission Bay itself has great biking and walking trail along the bay. We rented bikes for $12 per day and rode the bay and the boardwalk along the ocean. Good public transportation and great restaurants.I think it is the beat place to stay!

Nice beach area. Not much open in the winter but it was nice to park and get out and walk. My son wanted to ride the roller coaster but it was not open

We were staying just a couple of minutes walk away from Mission Beach which made things very easy. We spent Christmas afternoon there. The weather was good, the children swam (although it was too cold for me) and the beach is fine sand. There were people jogging, families playing, brave should surfing and it was a wonderful day.
