From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Point San Pablo is a small historic community isolated at the far end of Point San Pablo in Richmond, California. The village is home to a few dozen individuals living in hundreds of boats and a few dozen stilt houses. The area also fetaures the Point San Pablo Marina and Yacht Club. The village is located in a small valley of the Potrero Hills and alongside a small cove where the marina is protected from waves, in addition to a breakwater. The village is also the starting point for visitors to East Brother Light Station a historic landmark. The hills surrounding the town are completely undeveloped and feature chaparral landscaping. The area is near the Richmond Refinary and some tank farm containers are visible in addition to the Richmond Landfill across the waters of Castro Cove a contaminated estuarine habitat. Point San Pablo Beach is also located here. The village has spectacular panoramic views of the undeveloped coastlines of southern Napa, Sonoma, and Solano counties and eastern central Marin County. The isolation of the area and undeveloped lands make deer sightings commonplace. Other animals in the area include the endangered Salt Marsh Harvest Mouse and California Clapper Rail. The areas around the marina and breakwaters have many egrets, herons and other birds that enjoy the small wetlands areas there.
