“A NIce Afternoon at the Scenic La Jolla Cove”
Reviewed December 12, 2006

We spent a very nice afternoon at the La Jolla Cove while on our anniversary trip to San Diego. This is a very scenic part of La Jolla. We loved the grassy park area in front of the cove and there are also clean public restrooms which was nice.

The cove is a great place to explore the tidepools, there were scuba divers, snorkelers and the La Jolla Swim Club here the afternoon we were there. The water was warm enough in December for some to swim without wetsuits.

After some shopping on Prospect, we returned back to the walking paths along the cove and were able to watch the stages of the gorgeous sunset. Tourists and locals line up all over the coast to photograph this gorgeous event each evening.

“Love The Cove”
Reviewed November 25, 2006

La Jolla Cove is breathtaking! You have to experience the beauty to believe it. I lived in La Jolla for 5 years and realize now that there is no place like it in the United States. You will love the area!

“La Jolla Cove ....San Diego County, California”
Reviewed November 4, 2006

Gorgeous ocean setting in a very picturesque part of San Diego area. It's fun to watch the seals at La Jolla Cove. It's quite the photographer's paradise.
