“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

The La Jolla area has some breathtaking views and is a visual treat. It is also very exciting to see sea lions lounging on the beach in the Children's Pool and La Jolla Cove. Definitely worth the trek from San Diego to La Jolla Village for this. We didn't have a car, and we still made it. La Jolla Village is also a darling little place, and is worth spending some time exploring.

“Gotta see this beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

The close vicinity and visibility of the seals, the eateries, and view are the high lights, however, the stinky smell is something you have to put up with.
