The resort has many delights in store for guests of every kind, from families, solo visitors and honeymooning couples to groups seeking a unique venue for meetings or retreats.
A feast for the senses
Paradise Point Resort & Spa is a tropical wonderland that developed from what was originally known as the Mission Bay Aquatic Park. A dredging project, approved by the city council in 1958, turned a swampy area into 30 miles of beaches and opened a sun-kissed bay to recreational pursuits like swimming, boating and fishing. Today, visitors to the resort can see many of California’s indigenous species of birds, fish, marine mammals, invertebrates and plants in their natural environment. The resort’s layout invites strolls past picturesque lagoons that are home to ducks, turtles, herons and egrets and through spectacular gardens where hummingbirds are a common sight.
Paradise Point, a San Diego waterfront hotel, is well-known for its aquatic activities such as sailing, jet skiing, motor boating and kayaking can be learned and enjoyed.
Close to attractions
Several locations are within easy driving or even biking distance of the resort, including Pacific Beach, Ocean Beach and Mission Beach, where you’ll find the famous restored wooden roller coaster, the Giant Dipper, at Belmont Park. Paradise Point is also adjacent to SeaWorld San Diego, and you will not want to miss visiting the world-famous San Diego Zoo located amid the beautiful confines of Balboa Park with its spectacular gardens, fascinating museums and tempting eateries, all only a short drive away from the Mission Bay area. You are also close to the upscale shopping available in La Jolla, a 20-minute drive to the north; and Seaport Village, the USS Midway Museum and Petco Park, all in the City of San Diego, less than a 15-minute drive to the south.
For your dining pleasure
Enjoy the resort’s signature restaurant, Tidal, offering a laid-back, outdoors dining experience complete with a magnificent bay view. For burgers, fresh seafood, cocktails and beer try the Barefoot Bar & Grill, a popular destination for San Diegans and visitors alike since 1962. The Caveman Pizza Company takes its name from its location, a cave that doubled as a bunker during the Cold War. Here you can make your own pizza or call and have one delivered to your door. Want “fresh Mex?” Savor a taste of authentic Mexican cuisine along with your Margarita at the Tropics Cantina located beside the Main Pool.
