The charm of a city lies not only in its public buildings and attractions, but also in its residential areas. San Diego has many fine ones, each with its own special atmosphere. Just a few blocks from Shelter Island, you enter into an area called La Playa ("the beach"), and,as you will quickly notice, you have just set foot into one of San Diego's most exclusive and best neighborhoods.
The special charm of La Playa lies in its quiet, elegant serenity. Its homes, whether built in the 1920's or the 21st Century, reflect the pride and care of their owners. Its lawns and gardens are beautifully kept, and unlike most areas of San Diego, it is blessed with many trees. Although only a few minutes from downtown and Lindbergh Field International Airport, La Playa provides a sanctuary from the noise and bustle of a busy city life. A walk along Kellogg's Beach, or a stroll around the tree-shaded streets is a rewarding and relaxing experience.
La Playa (Spanish for "the beach") is a bayfront neighborhood in the Point Loma community of San Diego, California. It is bordered by the San Diego Bay on the East, Naval Base Point Loma on the South, the Wooded Area neighborhood to the West and Point Loma Village/Roseville-Fleetridge to the North. It lies across a channel from Shelter Island.
