Imperial Beach Information and Highlights

Imperial Beach is a residential beach city in San Diego County, California, with a population of 26,324 at the 2010 census. The city is the southernmost beach city in Southern California and the West Coast of the United States. It is in the South Bay area of San Diego County, 14.1 miles south of downtown San Diego and 5 miles northwest of downtown Tijuana, Mexico.


The "modern" history of Imperial Beach started about June 1887 when R. R. Morrison, a real estate developer, filed a subdivision map with the San Diego County Clerk. The map referred to the area as South San Diego Beach, The area it encompassed was 5th Street to 13th Street north of Palm Avenue and from about 9th Street to 17th Street between Palm Avenue and (what today is) Imperial Beach Boulevard This included areas that have since been annexed by San Diego and which were formerly called Palm City.

Many milestones have occurred during the city's history. The Volunteer Fire Department gave way slowly to a fully paid department. The Imperial Beach Police Department gave way to a contract with the San Diego County Sheriff's Department during a period when the city almost went bankrupt. An extremely popular fishing pier was built In the early 1960s after a bond issue was passed by the voters. The pier was destroyed by storms earlier in the early 1980s and was completely rebuilt by December 1988. Growth and development are key issues for the city's future, as they are in other areas of the country. Imperial Beach can't expand on any side, with the possible exception of annexation on the east side, up to the freeway, and action city consultants have recommended against taking. The city can go "up,” but building height, density and related quality-of-life issues are of critical interest to many.


Imperial Beach is the most southwesterly city in the continental United States. According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 4.5 square miles. 4.2 square miles of it is land and 0.3 square miles of it is water. The city occupies the extreme southwest corner of the continental United States: bordered by Tijuana, Mexico to the south, Coronado, California and the San Diego Bay to the north, San Diego to the east, and the Pacific Ocean to the west.
