Mission Beach real estate has miles of beachfront and bayfront single family listings, condos, and townhomes on this narrow strip of oceanfront and bayfront land. This laid back neighborhood stretches between Pacific Beach to the north and the Mission Bay Channel Jetty to the south, which serves as the ocean access to Mission Bay Park and provides a natural separation between Mission Beach and Ocean Beach.
Locals divide the area in to the North and South sections by historic Belmont Park and the decades old Big Dipper rollercoaster. Though Mission Beach shares the same 92109 zip code with Pacific Beach, they are two very distinct communities.
This neighborhood is nearby many of the most popular things in San Diego, including Sea World, world famous beaches, and Mission Bay Park, which is America's largest man made aquatic-based park.
Investment property in Mission Beach is extremely popular due to the outstanding weekly rental income produced during the summer months. Tourists from the nearby desert states will rent oceanfront and bayfront property on a weekly basis for a cost of an entire winter month. Selecting the right weekly vacation rental property can be a great way to own a second home in a relaxed beach setting.
North Mission Beach is full of newly upgraded homes for sale as well as small beach cottages and condos. The area is noted for an excellent rental history, including many short term vacation rentals. "North Mission", as the locals call it, is more convenient to the necessary services Pacific Beach offers, such as grocery stores and the post office.
South Mission Beach offers a more local feel to it with many long time residents. Still, there are many excellent opportunities to own investment property or personalize a custom primary residence. "South Mission" is popular among members of the charitable OMBAC, or Old Mission Beach Athletic Club, famous for putting on "The Coming Out Party" and "Over the Line" each year.
Both North Mission Beach and South Mission Beach have oceanfront and bayfront homes for sale and MLS listings available here on this website. Generally, the bayfront side is more "local" and is popular for sailboats and kayaking, while the beach side has more visitors and of course beautiful sunsets over the Pacific Ocean.
Area children have the option of attending one of three elementary schools, including Pacific Beach Elementary School, Sessions Elementary School, or Bayview Terrace Elementary School. Pacific Beach Middle School and Misson Bay High School also serve area families. All Mission Beach schools are operated by the San Diego Unified School District.
