13 Nov La Jolla Coast Walk:
San Diego, CA
The Coastline in La Jolla (pronounce La Hoya) are nothing short of breathtaking! The 1 ½ mile walk alongside the beach is out of this world. My favorite part was the Children’s Pool, or the “Casa” in local lingo. It is a tiny cove that used to be an area designated for children to swim but has been overtaken by sea lions and seals. At any given time there are tens of seals sun bathing on the rocks. Swimming at Casa Beach is not considered safe. The best place to view the seals is from the path above the beach or from the rocks on nearby beaches.
Another popular beach is Shell Beach, named for its popularity for a great spot to collect shells. The beach is best explored during low tide where you can see interesting things and sea life that get washed ashore.
The Ellen Browning Scripps Park, with its green fields is also alongside the coast. The La Jolla Cove and La Jolla Caves, where, for a small fee, you can enter the Cave Store and climb down to Sunny Jim Cave. There are also kayaking tours to explore the nearby caves. The La Jolla Cove is part of the La Jolla Underwater Park, where marine life is under special protection and is a popular destination for snorkelers.
Parking can usually be found somewhere along the street or by Scripps Park. It is always better to arrive early in busy seasons to insure a spot.
