Almost every major city has at least one attraction fit to make every tourist jealous, wishing they had something similar at home. This is San Diego's, a jewel of a beach with waters so clear sometimes you can see as much as thirty feet down. Colorful fish swim about garibaldi, yellowtail, and rays, even the occasional leopard shark. It's the most popular spot in the city for snorkelling. A handful of amenities have been provided to the crowd such as bathrooms and showers. Lifeguards watch over swimmers from morning to dusk. The beach portion is rather small, especially at high tide.

La Jolla Cove, San Diego Reviews - Write a Review

  • Love this place. Came here for the first time ever this weekend as a little birthday get a away. Views are beautiful and cute seals chilling at the rocks!

  • Beautiful beach and cove, with tide pools, beautiful sea life, and sea shells. The views are gorgeous and there are lots of great spots to sit, relax and watch the tide come in. Very relaxing, natural atmosphere. Also, If you are a yogi or do meditation, this is a great place to do it. This is my go to beach whenever I come to San Diego.

  • The views are nice. Very calming scenery. Clean area. It's good for picnic area, exercising, jogging, strolling while watching the open view of the beach. I'm sure kids will love this place seeing all those sealions. It gets crowded after 9am. Hard to find parking lot though. Today, I just went to get a piece of my mind. Very peaceful.

  • If you Love seals, this is a place to go. They are everywhere and they are very sweet. You can also swim and snorkel with them. Life time experience. And it is wild nature so you don't have to pay for it :)

  • Awesome to see seals and sea lions up close. Do give it a try to differentiate them! Smells fishy.
