Santa Barbara Cove in Mission Bay:
The Santa Barbara Cove is part of one of the many manmade bays and parks that make up Mission Bay. One of the features of Santa Barbara Cove that make it so attractive to Paddle Boarders is that it boasts 3 protected sides that keep the water calm even on days where the weather is windy.
There is plenty of parking located right across the road that makes for very easy access, and the icing on this cake is being able to paddle right up to the Barefoot Bar for amazing food and drinks! If you are looking to rent a paddle board for your trip to Mission Bay, visit Mission Bay Sportcenter located right on the beach.
