Best for Food
You are spoiled for choice when it comes to top restaurants in Mission Beach. One of the best of the lot is Luigi’s At The Beach, which is one of the best places in the region for pizza. You can buy it by the slice or order a complete pizza to make an evening of it – they’re so big you’ll need a whole evening to finish it off.
The Mission Café is another place that is always full to bursting. You may have to wait in line for a while, especially at the weekend, but that’s just a sign of how popular it is. You’ll find healthy salads, soups and sandwiches in abundance, and there are also plenty of vegetarian dishes to choose from.
World Famous is popular with locals and visitors alike. Its fish-based dishes including shrimp, scallops, crab and lobster will leave your mouth watering, and it also serves up a big breakfast, which is the perfect way to start your day.
If taco is more your thing, head to La Playa Taco Shop. It’s ideal for picking up a light lunch, whether a tamale, tortilla or burrito, and the prices are very reasonable.
Baked is famous for its brioche cinnamon rolls. Everything is made by hand on the day, and everything is baked and made without any preservatives. It’s the perfect place to pick up a sweet snack, including scones, sticky buns, muffins and more.
Best for Drink
Sandbar Sports Grill on Ventura Place is located very near to the ocean and is the ideal place to watch the sun setting slowly over the horizon. Hit the Sky Bar with a drink and order some food at the same time, then chill out and relax.
Coaster Saloon has daily specials and a happy hour that you can enjoy while watching sports on one of over 15 TVs. There’s also an open-air patio to carry on dancing long into the night at weekends.
You can book your choice of Mission Beach vacation rentals in a range of locations, but one of the best is South Mission Beach. Here you’ll find a number of popular bars, including The Pennant. This mellow beach bar has been around since the 1960s and is the place to go for beer and burgers.
The Beachcomber is also located on South Mission Beach, and it is one of the most popular bars in the area. Head here to watch live sports and listen to live music, and there are events on throughout the week including karaoke and a quiz. It also has some great deals on the beer at the weekends.
