  • Sunken trailer park - at the south end of Avenue E. In the 1980s, the water level of the Salton Sea rose and fell several times. The town of Bombay Beach was partially inundated by these fluctuations and a berm was built on the south end of town to prevent further flooding. The remains of a trailer park can be seen with some of the buildings and trailers half-buried in mud. Power and light poles can be seen in the water indicating where the remainder of the park used to be.
