“This 403-acre (163ha) artificial island in San Francisco Bay is tied to Yerba Buena Island. It was dredged out of the bay to house the Golden Gate International Exposition of 1939-40. At 1,000 acres (about 1.5 square miles) Treasure Island is one of the Bay’s more ambitious man-made features. Joined to hilly Yerba Buena Island, the island was built in the 1930s by pouring millions of rocks into a shallow part of the Bay to produce a rectangular plot of land. Within months of its creation, the new island was the site of San Francisco’s 1939-40 World’s Fair, which housed exhibits and attractions in a fantastical collection of buildings based on imaginary “Pacific” architecture. War clouds and the Depression kept the fair from achieving box-office success, but for years afterward locals happily reminisced about the aquacades, the over-the-top buildings, and the naughty feather dances by Sally Rand’s showgirls that produced a few private war clouds of their own. After Pearl Harbor, Treasure Island immediately became a naval base. Post-war plans called for it to become San Francisco’s new international airport, but the development of giant airplanes and the looming arrival of the passenger jet showed up the island's lack of size for that purpose. Following the collapse of the USSR, almost all naval facilities in the Bay Area were decommissioned. Treasure Island is now a new mixed-income neighborhood of people living in old Navy housing (much of it detached single homes) with a splendid view of San Francisco’s skyline. Future plans call for the construction of dense housing and possibly conference facilities, a development that could make it a West Coast version of New York’s Roosevelt Island. The Treasure Island Museum, housed in one of the two buildings left from the world fair, may look familiar since it often served as a backdrop in the “Nash Bridges” TV series. ”

Beach
“This is a generally very private beach that gives you a spectacular view of the Bay Bridge from your spot on the sand. You are blocked from the wind and the water is calm enough to swim in. Treasure Island is an odd place to check out and explore, with fantastic views and not much else. Park for free at Clipper Cove Way and walk back up the hill to access the beach. A fun day adventure, and there are also several wineries open for tastings on the weekend. Note that you must go over the Bay Bridge to get there and so do not try to go during morning rush hour.”

Natural Feature
“This island in San Francisco Bay is home to a Coast Guard station. The San Francisco – Oakland Bay Bridge passes through it by means of a tunnel. Joined to the man-made Treasure Island, the Bay Bridge tunnels through Yorba Buena Island as it spans the waters between Oakland and San Francisco).”
