“A Summer Day in Winter”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2014

We saw 8 ft waves and enjoyed a picnic lunch at the playground. Great workout walking on the beach. My daughter didn't mind the short hike up the hill to park in th residential area. Parking lot fills fast-get there before 9:30.

“Community Spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

Ate lunch at nice restaurant, hit the Surf Diva where we did a little shopping. All very good. Walked to the local park and watched surfers ride the big waves.

“A Magnificent Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2014

We went in January, when it was the off season, but we got an 80 degree day so it was perfect. There was plenty of parking and tons of space on the beach. The break seemed to go out forever, and walking along the shore was beautiful. Some of the best pictures from our trip were taken on this beach. I can't wait to go back

“Gorgeous View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014

Absolutely gorgeous view of the ocean and surrounding coastline. Nice park. La Jolla is crowded most days, but definitely worth fighting traffic to get down here.

“Very nice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014

Spent a few hours here with the wife. Was a gloomy day but still really nice. We walked along the path, Stopped to see the sea lions. Very nice scenery, very green. Took lots of pics. Definitely check out the shores , then go walk around the down town area then head up to mount soledad for even more beautiful views!
