“Wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

A great place to spend a few days. Swim, snorkel or just walk the cliffs and beaches. A little overcast which, I am told, is common. Watching the Harbor Seals and Sea Lions is easy year-round and WHale watching is seasonal.

“Sun, Sand, Rocks, Snorkelling etc.”

This is one place near San Diego where you can enjoy watching the seals play, beautiful sunset views, snorkeling in the cove and swimming in the ocean...
Must go when visiting San Diego.

“Give it a shot”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

We expected to spend a lot of time in La Jolla, but ended up stopping by the Childrens Beach to see the seals and feed the squirrels! The cove is a different experience, so it's worth stopping. We did not do any street walking in the town.

“COOL”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

I loved the day spent at the cove. We rented snorkel gear and our 10 yr. old had a blast in and out of the water. the sheltered area was pleasant and scenic with seals just off coast. Cucumber sea creatures captivated us. The marine life was beautiful. And the craggy rocks were fun to swim around and splash about

“"A perfect Beach outing"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

Visited LaJolla in San Diego.. A cabbie told us to visit this beach.. We were at the sea world and weren't enjoying much as kids were little grown up and decided to go to the beach.. It was a bliss for us to see such a nice and clean beach.. It was our first beach visit in USA and we thoroughly enjoyed.. It was windy and chilly though the season was May.. Families with children were bathing and enjoying.. A well manicured lawn was their besides the beach where people were sitting with their picnic hampers.. On the sides of the road were quite a lot of stalls.. Lots of restaurants and eateries.. A must visit:)
