South Bay San Diego is known for its beaches and water, but there are many choices of places to live within the region and all have their own vibe. South Bay is in the southwest part of San Diego County. It includes several cities along with some unincorporated communities. This area is a mix of residential developments with shipyards and industrial complexes near its beaches.
Communities included in this region are Bonita, Imperial Beach, Lincoln Acres, Chula Vista, South San Diego and National City. While many of these cities are industrialized, there are some more pristine. One of those, Imperial Beach, labels itself as a classic southern California town because it remains mostly untouched by urbanization.
The borders of South Bay include both the Pacific Ocean and San Diego Bay. The border between the United States and Mexico serves as its southern border and its northern border is National City and Coronado. Otay Lakes borders it to the east.
