Relax and Take a Swim

If you're looking for a quiet place to swim and enjoy the water, Mission Point is just right for you. South Mission Beach is typically much busier in terms of visitors when compared to the smaller beach at Mission Point, but that doesn't mean there's not plenty to do here.

Take Out a Kayak or Fish Along the Jetty

Along with swimming and sunbathing, this area is also ideal for boating and kayaking. If you want to keep your feet on solid ground, there are plenty of biking and jogging opportunities here as well thanks to the many paths. If you're looking for a place to play a game of volleyball, there is a court on-site. Fishing is also a popular activity here along the jetty side of the park.

Have a Picnic

This park is also perfect for couples and families. Picnic tables are situated throughout the area so you can enjoy a meal with your friends and loved ones, and there are also fire pits so you can build a fire when visiting at night. If you have kids, they can run and play in the grassy area of the park or they can check out one of the children's play areas, affectionately known as tot lots by the locals.
