All the seals and beach is just beautiful, just love the moment! Small seals to some giants, well worth the trip!

“Your kids will enjoy seeing the seals”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

Controversial. to say the least. Just don't tell anyone you're going or talk about it afterward and you'll be OK. Locals are DEFINITELY split on the "seal issue".

“Rough and Rocky”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

Took the kids there to swim and it was really rough. There are lots of rocks and it can be a little stressful with little ones.

“Take the kids!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013 via mobile

My friends and I stopped to see the seals. The seals do smell but it was really neat to see them plus there is an amazing view! I didn't have my kids on this trip which might have been a good thing. Only, because they wouldn't have wanted to leave.

“Beautiful La Jolla!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

Beautiful spot to stop and see the Seals, We sat on the beach for about an hour and got very close to some the Seals. Great photo opt for anyone into photography. The beach is beautiful here and you must stop if driving up the coaset.
