Owner description: San Diego's most desirable spot for swimming, diving and snorkeling. The water is calm and the cove is ecologically protected. There is also a world famous dive site that is located in the La Jolla ecological preserve.

Enjoyed watching the numerous sea lions basking in the sun on the rocks. Walk along the walkway and enjoy the ocean breeze and surf.

Fun to see the waves crash up and watch the seals slide off the rocks and seek cover. Go down a bit and go explore the rocky shore as well.

Funnier, nicer and more amusing then 98% of what passes for entertainment on television. The seals are endlessly amusing. Just their presence alone makes La Jolla worthy of a stopover. Add in the grey whales, birds, tide pools and the beautiful vistas and La Jolla can't be beat.
Plus: FREE!

Drove to La Jolla to see the seals and boy there were lots to see! It is amazing how close you can get to them so we got some great pictures. Walked around the town and visited some shops. The only thing in La Jolla you have to be careful about is that they have a 2 hour parking limit. We watched the parking enforcer marking people's tires. Apparently they come around every hour & mark your tires. After 2 hours you get a ticket. If you are in the area, definitely stop & see the seals! You & your family will enjoy seeing them in their natural setting.
