“Beautiful beach!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

We went to the beach for the day and it was gorgeous. Stairs to get down to the beach and tons of surfers. Waves are big and so probably not great for kids, but may have just been the day we were there.

“Loved WIndandsea”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

One of our favorite beaches in La Jolla. My boys, 9 & 11, loved body surfing & watching the surfers a little ways down. Water temp was nice and beach is far less crowded than others. Relaxing, fun & easy parking!

“Gorgeous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

Was told by friends to check out this beach. Glad I did. Amazing! Jealous of the people who live along the shore line.

“Great Place to Watch the Locals Surf”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

This is a historic beach in surf culture. In fact, the first mainland surfers to charge Hawaiian waves came directly from this beach!! This is NOT a place to learn to surf. This is not a place to surf even if you know how or think you know how. Come on by and watch the locals hit the waves but stay out of the water. There are strong currents and even stronger locals that don't like to share the waves. On another note, there aren't many spots in San Diego more scenic.

“Watch the Surfers and See the Sun Set”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

Great place to watch the sunset at night and to watch the locals surfing both in the morning and evening. Not a beach suitable for small children (lots of rocks, and steep gradient into the water). There is a sidewalk that runs alongside the beach and benches to sit and enjoy the sunset or watch the surfers.
