Allow at least half a day to walk along the coastline and admire the views. There are places to rest and buy art, to swim in the surf or wade in gentle seaside pools. Lots of natural wild life like seals, sea lions, cormorants, gulls...More

The views and cliffs are incredible. The biggest problem is the ignorant people that won't leave the sea lions and seals alone. Otherwise, truly a beautiful park.

An enchanting park which sits above the captivating beach. EBS park is large enough to accommodate a family reunion and small enough for a lover's picnic. Large shady trees protect your peace while you quietly read a book, or blog, and open areas for basking...More

This is a beautiful spot with plenty of space. There are multiple benches and picnic-like tables, some within a group of trees to provide shade. One edge of the park is lined with palm trees; gorgeous southern California!

Parking could be an issue, but we got lucky. We took the steps down to the beach, a little alcove and spent several hours playing in the waves. There was more to do down a ways, but we were too tired to venture out.

After having our picnic by the beach, we kept walking until Seal Rock, taking in all the sights and sounds of the sea. Talk about seals galore and interesting birds flying above.

Learned that Dr. Seuss spent time here in LaJolla and the trees in the park were his inspiration. Super nice small park, well maintained. Smaller than I expected (which is nice for me)
