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.

La Jolla Cove is a must to do while visiting San Diego, California. You must go down the Cove to see a magnificent view and admired the hard work the two Chinese workers did during the excavation for smuggling migrants and alcohol (illegal at the time) . There is a small fee to be able to go down, but is worth the money paid. Rental of swimming and snorkeling attire are available if you want to swim and snorkel down the Cove. Wildlife of seals and pelicans add a touch of this magnificent scenery, however the smell can be overpower full . Plenty of shops, restaurant and a beautiful beach along the coast ...highly recommend !

It's really impressive to see how all the wildlife accept human behavior. Pelicans and seals are just living like if nobody is around and it's unique, people swim with wild seals not in an artificial surrounding.

Hired some flippers, mask & snorkel and went snorkelling from the cove and saw loads of varieties of fish swimming in relatively shallow water. Amazing to have seals swimming alongside and underneath you as you are in the water.
Visability was only about 6 or 7 feet on the day we went and can be smelly around the rocks as you walk to & from the cove due to all the sea birds who reside there.

very pretty place with beautiful views, so lovely watching the seals in their natural habitat, very nice but expensive shops and eateries in the vicinity too.
