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 Reviews & Ratings

  • this place is beautiful. We got to see a couple of sea lions and even though there were a lot of people, there was more than enough space to set up our chairs/umbrellas. If you"re in the area, this is a spot you need to check out

  • first off i did not know you could actually get so close to the seals! so obviously showing up spontaneously to see seals from the sidewalk above the shore, i was very shocked to see a group of people so close to them down there. we walked down to them and it’s just so cute to see them sun bathing and relaxing. definitely worth seeing if you’re in the area and like animals!!

  • Over all La Jolla Village was quaint, amazing views. Beach was okay. Definitely not where we could stay and play just because the smell from seals was over whelming. But it is great to see them up close. I wish people would leave them alone. Some of them were way too close to them. Personal space please. I can’t imagine the animals like being hovered on.

  • Hands down one of the best and cleanest beaches I have ever been too.

  • This is where you can see the seals! Like, tons of them, with babies and mamas all flopping around and being cute. I was there in March in case the time of year makes a difference. So glad I went here!
