Island Resort Offers New Waterfront Experiences for Summer on Mission Bay

SAN DIEGO, Calif. – May 28, 2014 – Nestled amongst 44-acres of lush gardens, lagoons and private beaches on Mission Bay, Paradise Point Resort & Spa, by Destination Hotels & Resorts, is San Diego’s ideal waterfront destination. To welcome the start of summer, the tropical island resort is offering the facility to dock and dine in San Diego, island recreation and an exciting summer concert series.

Whether the occasion calls for a quick bite, a romantic dinner or a casual afternoon of fun in the sun, Paradise Point serves up the perfect waterfront dining option. Dock and dine in San Diego at the resort’s new signature restaurant, Tidal, which offers fresh “craft and catch” cuisine, artfully selected for the summer season and inspired by the water’s changing tides. Barefoot Bar & Grill, a casual venue that honors Paradise Point’s island roots, is a local favorite for its laid-back atmosphere and panoramic views of Mission Bay.

The most unique feature of dining in paradise is the ability to dock and dine in San Diego by accessing the resort’s restaurants by boat. Paradise Point’s private, full-service marina offers the opportunity for guests to spend the day on the water before docking free of charge for a beachfront bite – a seamless “dock and dine” experience.

Those who would rather not helm their own vessel can still enjoy a day on the bay by hopping aboard the resort’s Scenic Bay Cruise. Offered now through Labor Day, this 60-minute boat tour of Mission Bay delivers striking views of the Pacific Ocean, SeaWorld, Fiesta Island and the downtown San Diego skyline. For a more hands-on experience, Paradise Point’s marina is offering a variety of summer watersports including jet skiing, kayaking, wakeboarding and stand-up paddleboarding.

As the sun heats up over the shimmering waters of Mission Bay, so does the energy during Paradise Point’s Sunday Fun Day Summer Concert Series. Hosted on the waterfront outdoor patio of the Barefoot Bar & Grill, the summer afternoon concert series will feature live music by San Diego's favorite rock cover bands, local brews and island-inspired signature cocktails. Sundays from noon to 4 p.m., now through September 28, dock & dine in San Diego and sing along, dance or just relax with live music amidst cool breezes, tranquil waters and soft sandy beaches.
