Here’s a long aerial view of Harbor Island and its marina, the artificial island created by dredging which lies just south of the international airport. There are no houses here as permanent residences are prohibited by California law regarding tidal lands. The hotels are using land leased from the city.
The description states:
Harbor Island – San Diego, California
The unique beauty of San Diego is dramatized by this dazzling aerial view of Harbor Island.
