Owner description: It was supposed to be a children's pool, but the harbor seals took over and it's a main tourist and local attraction. Great picture spot.

We saw no seals that day, but the origin story of how the pool came to be was very interesting. I can't believe people actually protest to get rid of the seals, I would have loved to have seen them.

We took a lovely day trip up to La Jolla specifically to see the seals at the children's pool. It was such a cool experience, especially for me being an animal lover. And the views of the ocean are to die for! Oh and did I mention its free to go? Bonus!

A beautiful experience at sundown as the seals come ashore to bed down. A highlight of our trip. Unfortunately, a snorkeler in the water thought HE was the show. The seals waited on the fringes until he got out of the water. Then he went back in and so did the seals! Boo! He also encouraged others to approach the seals. Double Boo! Once he left, the seals came ashore very quickly. Beautiful. I hope the city gets rid of the people and gives the seals space and respect. La Jolla would lose a fabulous, natural tourist attraction if the seals go away.

Nice, protected bay beach area for swimming in La Jolla area. During our stay there have been a lot of seals laying on the rocks and some of them even enjoyed swimming with the people! Cool!

Weekends this area seems pretty packed and it is challeging to find a parking space even at 09.00 AM.
