This is my favorite beach in San Diego, because the surf is a little more tame here. It's just really hard to find parking

This place is amazing!!! The views are out of this world A must visit. Plus a visit is free. It has a great walking path. You will see tons of birds and the seals. We spent our Sunday mid afternoon there what a great way to start the day. This is a great place to take the whole family. We even saw people having a picnic brunch even though it was a bit chilly. There were even people in wet suits swimming I would imagine it was freezing cold. Noticed that there didn't seem to be much parking if you are driving. We took the bus from Old Town to La Jolla it was a very scenic drive as we did not rent a car.

Tip: Go there to see the sunset

Pros: beautiful views, wildlife, awesome place to take a walk

I highly recommend this place. It's really beautiful. You can see lots of birds and sea lions (the smell is strong) very close. And the views are amazing.

One of the best. Beautiful rocky shoreline with a beach just ahead. The views are spectacular. On a good day (weekend) parking may be hard to find. Kids had a great time at Scripps park, walking along the rocks and playing in the coves. Good places to have lunch close by as well.

With the exception of the Cove that has been spoiled by the rank smell of the seals, La Jolla Shores is still a beautiful location and is worth taking a drive even during a rain storm. The shoreline through here is just spectacular.
