“Fun!”
Reviewed February 7, 2014

Great for any age. You can explore tide pools and get up close to sun bathing seals. It does smell a little bit, but it's worth it. Parking was a little hard, so try to get their early if you can.

“Don't Have to Spend a Dime”
Reviewed February 5, 2014

The La Jolla Beach Cove area is a wonderful place to spend the day "cost free." In addition to the great views, wildlife abounds from the many seals swimming in the ocean or basking on the beach to the pelicans gliding above the water's surface, the experience is certainly one to remember. Parking is free along the beachfront or even on the street if you are lucky enough to find a spot. Bring a lunch and eat in the beautiful park or enjoy an amazing fish taco at George's while enjoying the spectacular view. Regardless of your choice, you are guaranteed to have a wonderful day at La Jolla Beach Cove.

“Nice to watch the seals”
Reviewed February 4, 2014

Not a suuuper big deal but it is the first time I see seals this close. They are there just laying low doing nothing, just being cute. There are about 50 seals on all sizes and colors.

The kids will love this! The park is a nice place to relax and enjoy the beautiful ocean views from up high. Breaking waves and cliffs! Really California!
