Founded in 1929, Emerald Bay was named for the color of the nearby waters. With a rich history once recognized by European explorers such as Cabrillo and early 20th century farmers drawn here by the fertile ground and temperate climate, over time this private enclave shifted from a low-key beach destination to the ideal coastal community for both families and those seeking solitude alike. This relaxed seaside community consists of custom homes with great variety of architectural styles.
