San Diego Sights

Shelter Island

  • Island

Fodor's Review

This reclaimed peninsula now supports towering palms and resorts, restaurants, and side-by-side marinas. Shelter Island is the center of San Diego's yacht-building industry, and so boats in every stage of construction are visible in its yacht yards. A long sidewalk runs past boat brokerages to the hotels and marinas that line the inner shore, facing Point Loma. On the bay side, fishermen launch their boats and families relax at picnic tables along the grass, where there

are fire rings and permanent barbeque grills. Within walking distance is the huge Friendship Bell, given to San Diegans by the people of Yokohama, Japan, in 1960 and the Tunaman's Memorial, a statue commemorating San Diego's once-flourishing fishing industry.
