North Shore Beach was one of several planned developments created near the Salton Sea in the late 1950s.  It was envisioned as a recreational resort community on the northeast shore of the  Salton Sea.

The developers invested large amounts of money in infrastructure such as roads, power, fresh water supply, and even an airstrip that supported amphibious planes.  Potential buyers and investors were tantalized by the prospect of cheap property they felt was destined to increase in value very quickly.  A yacht club, boat marina, and hotel were also constructed as part of the project to further entice people to the region.
