Children's Pool Beach - Review

In the 1930s something hilarious began happening to this beach. It was envisioned as a place where children could safely swim in the water. To this effect, the local municipality build a sea wall to keep the beach sheltered from rough water conditions. An unforeseen consequence of this was that seals also found such conditions very favorable, going so far as to give birth to their young at the beach. Now there has been a long and hot debate over whether the seals or the children deserve the beach more. The animals themselves have grown used to the presence of humans. Swimming is allowed at the beach but be careful not to wander too far into the water as the presence of the wall and underwater reefs can create a very strong characters.

Children's Pool Beach, San Diego Reviews

  • While visiting La Jolla Cove, I learned the difference between a seal and a sea lion. Up until this point in my life I always thought a seal was a sea lion and a sea lion was a seal. But after googling it up and seeing them in person, I now know the difference! So this area is where all the SEALS come to hang out. If you want to see the sea lions just head a little bit along the coast and you'll see all the sea lions playing on the rocks.

  • Beatifil scenic view and a must for any traveler visiting San Diego. A spot for the family or even for a nice walk on a date.

  • Excellent beach. Highly recommend if traveling with kids.

  • This is a good place to take pictures. Awesome views. Good place for walking around and contemplate the pacific, seals, birds and other animals in their natural environment. I went here in early June and it was 60 degrees (not sure how cold the water could be) plus it was windy. It took us about 45-60 minutes but there are a couple of benches you could use to sit and enjoy the view so the time will depend on you. Parking was kind of hard to find but didn't take me 10 minutes (I was lucky to find one spot available) in a week day around noon.

  • Very interesting beach area and seeing seals.
