Shelter Island

In 1950 San Diego’s port director decided to raise the shoal that lay off the eastern shore of Point Loma above sea level with the sand and mud dredged up during the course of deepening a ship channel in the 1930s and ’40s. The resulting peninsula, Shelter Island, became home to several marinas and resorts, many with Polynesian details that still exist today, giving them a retro flair.
