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.

My girlfriend and I went to Jolla cove initially to go kayaking, we arrived a few hours early as we thought we would check the beach out and grab some food.
It turned out to be a great idea, the minute we parked up, we...More
It was a quick visit to see the sea lions and seals in their natural habitat. La Jolla is a very cute and charming place and we saw more than 20 animals at the same time, so the goal was definitely achieved. Maybe it was...More
It is a great place to spend some time, walking and watching the great views of the sea caves, sea lions and kayaks in the sea. You can rent a kayak and explore the caves too.
Great place to have lunch too
Getting to LaJolla is no fun, particularly if you hit traffic on I 10 which I assume is a given, but once you get to the Cove, it is a great place to relax. We hit the place in January so we did not deal...More
Loved walking the beach and then traveling down the sidewalk to view people kayaking in the cove among the seals. I got some great pictures of seals and pelicans. Followed that with fish tacos in town and some gelato that was fabulous. Fun place to...More
The cove was a fun place to swim for an hour or so; not a relaxing swim that day. Be careful of rocks that extend under the water. My son and his new wife married there one Saturday morning; incredibly picturesque! Beach house available with...More

Yes but it would be better to swim at the Children's Beach very close by within walking distance because there are life guards on duty. If you have not swum in the Pacific before it is best to swim where the are life guards because rip currents are common and unless you are experienced, you may not know what to do. They will also advise if there are other things to be aware of for the day such as high waves, sting rays, etc. The average water temp in the summer is in the low 70's.
