Mission Bay

This bay has always been popular amongst families as it's close to town and is a good swimming beach. As well as swimming you can check out the local cafes or take the kids to play at the very popular playground adjacent to the beach! Be warned, it can get very very busy at weekends and during the school holidays so if you are looking for quiet, this is probably not the one to go for! It remains a firm favourite though and for those spur of the moment spring sunny days it's great. Mecca has opened a lovely partly open air cafe right by the playground which serves great coffee and brunch a popular but excellent spot - equally good in winter wrapped up with the heaters and outdoor fire!
