Owner description: It was supposed to be a children's pool, but the harbor seals took over and it's a main tourist and local attraction. Great picture spot.

“Landmark location”
Reviewed 19 June 2012

The seals were fun to watch but very very smelly - at least street parking was easy to find and free.

“Up Close and Personal”
Reviewed 5 June 2012

You can see and be close to seal and sea lions - better than any zoo. Be respectful of their habitat and enjoy!

“It delights!”
Reviewed 4 June 2012

A wonderful place to view the sea lions. Many people went onto the beach area for photo opps. There is a sea wall that encloses the Children's Pool and one can get a different view of the sea lions. The water can splash you at the very end of the walkway. A must see beach while in La Jolla.

“SEALS”
Reviewed 4 June 2012

it's amazing that you can get within 20 ft of these gorgeous creatures. Those beautiful faces and big faces blinking at you will melt your heart. A true treasure of a location and unforgetable experience. Just hope eveyone keeps it perfect!

“Brilliant for all!”
Reviewed 28 May 2012

Went here with partner, friends and their kids.
A great place to watch seals up close...they clearly like the attention. There is a small beach for the kids...good to let them play without them running away! Prospect street with it's Up-market shops is 2-3 minutes walk..deffo a must! Parking is available...but limited...expect to pay 8-10$ along prospect st.
