“Pretty scenic beauty spot”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

Liked the pretty beach but not convenient to restrooms and no snack bar or cafe close by. Good for picnics.

“Wow!”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

We loved this area! The seals were so close and were swimming and having a good time right at our feet. You can rent snorkeling equipment and enjoy the clear water. We weren't able to do that, but we watched others. The tide pools were great to watch crabs and sea urchins. It was just a beautiful place to visit with a bustling crowd and stunning scenery. The smell isn't the greatest around the seals, but if you can get past that, its well worth a visit!

“Beautiful”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

Must do is the walk from La Jolla Shores to the Caves. Don't miss the underground cove just off Coast Walk. Seal lions are funny but smelly.

“Beautiful But Busy”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

Rock formations, green/blue water and a pretty view, but packed. Local tip: I walk west along the coast walk, there are steps that take you to a small, large rock framed beach without the crowds. There's a view of the Children's Pool and Pelican Rock from it.
