Character and coastline.

Atmosphere and Adventure. Exploration and Excitement. La Jolla, “the jewel,” entices you to come explore its idyllic climate, miles of dramatic Pacific coastline, and world-class museums, galleries and boutiques.


La Jolla Cove

  • Tucked below Scripps Park, adjacent to La Valencia, the petite beach nestled between sandstone cliffs lies within the San Diego-La Jolla Underwater Park Ecological Reserve with water visibility sometimes exceeding 30 feet, creating a diving and swimming paradise. Due to its extraordinary beauty, La Jolla Cove is one of the most photographed beaches in Southern California. (1100 coast Boulevard)

La Jolla Shores

  • Located at 8200 Camino del Oro, a short drive from La Valencia, the Shores is approximately one mile of sandy beach with some of the most gentle waves in all of San Diego. Many novice scuba classes are held at the Shores; the area includes a grassy park ideal for picnicking and an assortment of delightful restaurants and shops within walking distance.

Windansea Beach

  • Situated between Pacific Beach and La Jolla, Windansea is a rocky shore known best for is beautiful scenery and surf breaks created by underwater reefs. Sandstone rocks create a perfect area for sunbathing; however, due to the rocky shore and popular surf breaks, swimming and surfing can become quite crowded and challenging for the novice.

Children’s Pool

The Children’s Pool (850 Coast Boulevard), originally known as the Casa, is a small picturesque beach with a panoramic view. Originally intended as a fully protected swimming area, sand has filled in much of the area inside the wall and is now a haven for sunbathing seals. You can venture out across the seawall, watching seals as they sunbathe or play in the surf; the area is usually closed to swimmers due to the seals.
