San Diego's most desirable spot for swimming, diving and snorkeling. The water is calm and the cove is ecologically protected. There is also a world famous dive site that is located in the La Jolla ecological preserve.

With the feel of fresh ocean air, it was nice to see seals floating with their head above the water and basking in the little sun there was on this predominantly cloudy day.

What a spectacular view of the Pacific Ocean and coastline! I have never before seen so many seals and sea lions enjoying themselves. They were swimming and sun bathing. They don’t pay any attention to the people gawking at them. It was a fabulous experience for our whole family!

Looked wonderful, fresh sea air, but far too busy with nowhere to park to enjoy it. There are far quieter coves on the Pacific Highway so drive north and enjoy.

The la Jolla cove is one of San Diego hidden jewels. Plenty to see and enjoy. A great place to just walk and enjoy the ocean views. Plenty of longer walks are all around the are.

I live here. This is a must see if you are in the northern part of San Diego. Car needed--no good public transit. Prob OK to UBER if you are making a day of it. Beautiful to take a walk around and enjoy the beauty,the sea life, have a picnic. Lots of nearby restaurants.
