“Mani's, Seals, and caves oh my!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

La jolla was beautiful. I went with my friend and we're in our late 20's however there was things to do here for all ages. Now we ate at a great restaurant, looking over the water, it was called azel's steakhouse, the staff was wonderful and the food was delicious. We got a manicure and then walked down to the cove to see the caves and the seals. Lots of kid friendly activities to do. Like I said fun for all ages.

“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.
