Owner description: A famous beach for surfing.
Reviewed 20 July 2014

More of a locals place than La Jolla Shores, this is a rocky, picturesque beach that's a must see. For the easiest swimming go to the southern end of the beach. Downsides: The surfing here is pretty clicky and I hear not welcoming to newbies. And there's only one pit toilet. Guess that'll force you to go into the water. You won't regret it.

Little beach, not very busy... kind of smelly and the waves are crashing here so little kids might not be the biggest fans. Also not the best place to learn how to boogie board but would be great once you knew what you were doing.

I am retired in dentistry and have lived in this area the first part of my career in La Jolla! Surfing is amazing here and it brings back such memories of one of my partners in dentistry who loved surfing here! You still see the local surfers claiming their spots! That has not changed with surfers. It is a wonderful place to go and enjoy the surf!!!!!!

Windansea makes gorgeous photos, especially at Sunset, but the steps down from the street are wooden and rickety. Have trouble getting up and down? Stay up and just look. There are large out croppings on the beach that make for interesting photos or portrait backgrounds.

Parking is awful at peak times.

If you are not an experience ocean goer - this is not the place for you. Strong currents and reef rocks.
If you grew up in the ocean, you will love it!
