The wind, rain and tides worked together to reveal “buried treasure” in Coronado this week. The SS Monte Carlo is displaying her rusted hull at the Coronado Shores beach (aptly nicknamed, Shipwrecks). It crashed onto our shores on January 1, 1937.
The video and photos are from January 27th, 2021 at 2:15pm PST. If you head out to explore the wreck, please be aware of the sharp and rusted edges sticking out of the sand.
