by tourists to the more secluded coves most desired
by surfers, divers, and swimmers, La Jolla beaches

the north and Windansea Beach to the south, the
La Jolla shoreline consists of steep sandstone
cliffs that are seperated by coves and sandy beaches.

views are a vacation paradise for tourists and a
water recreation highlight for locals. There are
seven unique beaches that dot the seven mile
coastline against a backdrop of real estate, resorts,
cliffs, tall palm trees, and lush scenary.
Downtown La Jolla is conveniently located near
most of the beaches which not only provide parking
for beach visitors but plenty of fine restaurants,
intimate cafes, culture, art galleries, and other
types of commercial convenience.
Between mid day and 4 PM, the crowds at any of
the La Jolla beaches can be very big. The best
advice when visiting any of the beaches in La Jolla
is to come to the beach early and stay late – so
that you can enjoy the magic of the sunsets and
dusk views from across the ocean horizons.

popular beach for families with the largest
expansion of flat, sandy beaches. If you enjoy
people watching, sunbathing, and lazy days on the
beach – La Jolla Shores is where you want to be.
La Jolla Cove is another excellent beach, with
steep sandstone cliffs offering amazing views and
the paradise of sparkling blue water the cove is
known for. The La Jolla Cove is a swimmer’s dream
come true because of it’s gentle water. Along
with the Children’s Pool, the Cove is rich with
reefs that attract scuba divers and snorkelers to
the abundance of marine life.
There are several La Jolla Caves that were carved
by nature into the sandstone cliffs between La
Jolla Cove and La Jolla Shores that help attract
ocean kayakers from around the world. There is
one cave in particular, known as “Sunny Jim Cave”
that can be entered through a man made tunnel
that leads to a steep descent through a narrow
underground tube to a wooden deck.
