Fiesta Island, situated within Mission Bay, is a sprawling park that attracts numerous charity walks, runs, bicycle races, and special events. It is particularly renowned as the host of the annual Over-the-Line tournament. Accessible from 4:00am to 10:00pm daily, this peninsula offers a plethora of recreational opportunities.
Notably, Fiesta Island welcomes both dogs and horses, making it a pet-friendly haven. Dogs can roam freely, either on or off leash, but owners are kindly reminded to clean up after their animals.
On the island, visitors can find the Fiesta Island Youth Camp and the Aquatic Center, catering to the diverse interests and needs of the community.
To ensure safety and preserve the environment, fires are permitted exclusively within the city-provided fire rings that dot the island's shoreline. These fire rings operate on a first come, first served basis. It is essential to note that portable fire containers and fires directly on the sand are strictly prohibited.
For water sports enthusiasts, there is a designated 5 m.p.h. zone on the island's east side, which serves as a favored spot for recreational activities. Additionally, a permitted water ski area called Hidden Cove exists, and those interested in water skiing can obtain permits exclusively from the City of Diego Lifeguards at their headquarters, located at 2581 Quivira Court.
