Description of Local Area

Bay Pointe is centrally located in the beautiful Mission Bay area of Pacific Beach. One of Pacific Beach’s highlights is the miles of shoreline and beaches along the Pacific Ocean, with the beach scene revolving around the historic Crystal Pier, a large pier and hotel at the west end of Garnet Avenue. The boardwalk is typically crowded with pedestrians, cyclists, rollerbladers, and shoppers, but no matter what your pleasure, there is always something happening on the beach or the boardwalk. As the sun goes down and the tides change, “PB”, as it is known by the locals, reawakens with dozens of night time hangouts coming to life. Dancing, live music, and San Diego’s hottest beach bars are all within easy walk from the beach. The area boasts dozens of bars, cafes, and eateries lining the main East-West Street Garnet Avenue and Mission Boulevard, which runs north-south. Commuters enjoy easy access to Mission Valley, Fashion Valley, the San Diego Freeway (I-5), Ocean Beach Freeway (I-8), fine restaurants, La Jolla, Sea World and the San Diego International Airport.
