About Children's Pool Beach, San Diego

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

  • 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.

  • Such a cute area! It was a bit cloudy and chilly to swim for us but seeing the seals was so fun. Downtown is just a 5 min walk away too.

  • Beautiful views. No access to the beach Dec-May because of pupping season for the seals. There are public restrooms, but they are quite gross.

  • Seals were awsome

  • I love being able to go watch the seals on a nice day :) overall a beautiful coastline to stroll around and enjoy the views.
