“maybe the wrong time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2014

This is our second visit there. On the moring of the day, it seems all the seals are playing in the sea instead of lying on the beach. Anyway, still love'in it

“Add this to your San Diego Itinery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2014

Very fashionable part of San Diego, with nice sea frontage, shops and great restaurants. The snorkelling is supposed to be very good here, but I didn't get time to try it out. Eat at Eddie V's which had great food and lovely views.

“GORGEOUS”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2014

This is a must for visitors to the area - the locals are not crazy about the wildlife, but seriously - why not? This is real life, not Sea World! It is a gorgeous spot and you will have plenty of luck finding seals, birds and other animals as well as plenty of people watching if you like.

“One of the nicest views in the whole country.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2014

I have been touring around the whole country on a roadtrip recently, and can say that La Jolla has one of the most scenic shorlines/coves in the whole country. Breathtaking views! Awesome place to walk around or have a picnic.

“Beautiful!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2014

Very scenic and worth seeing. Places to walk and jog and you can eat a picnic lunch in Scripps park. Many Seals swimming about, but beware the smell!
