Chula Vista: Bayfront

The Chula Vista Bayfront includes most of the Chula Vista coastal zone, along with the San Diego Bay at the Western boundary of the city and is bound by I-5 to the East. It features two marinas, the Chula Vista Yacht Club, community parks and a few restaurants. The Bayfront also features the Sweetwater Marsh National Wildlife Refuge, one of the few remaining salt marsh habitats on the Pacific Coast, and the Living Coast Discovery Center, a non-profit nature education center. A large portion of the Bayfront is currently undeveloped.
