“Close to Perfection”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

La Jolla Cove is one of my favorite places to go, and is only a couple of minutes from my house. Whatever the weather, you are treated with a stunning view in all directions. The best time to go is early in the morning - grab a coffee, and renew your soul!

“Cute Sea Lions!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

A great place to watch wildlife and stroll along some tide pools. I would definitely recommend this for all travelers, young and old. Just remember to bring a jacket, because the sea breeze can get a bit chilly...

“Must see!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014 via mobile

This was a really neat place. The sea lions are everywhere. You can walk through the cave to the other side, and stand on the rock and check out the creatures in the tide pools.

“A beautiful and diverse place.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014 via mobile

I may be prejudice as I live right up the street but the cove is a photo opportunity just waiting to happen. Great views, so much to do close and sea lions. Don't forget the tide pools and pirate cave. Considered 1 of the 10 best places in the world to snorkel.

“What's that smell??”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

La Jolla Cove is home to seals and birds and their excrement. At certain times of the year, the smell is overwhelming. The city is embroiled in an animal rights issue that has not been resolved. I live in La Jolla.
