  • At 5 dollars and 144 steps this is still worth a visit , not for the disabled or too elderly the steps are very steep, we enjoyed it. 
  • One of the most beautiful spots of San Diego. You can see various types of birds and marine animals. Next, in the childrens pool you can have contact with sea lions in the sand.

  • Residential area near San Diego featuring sea caves and sea lions sunbathing a few meters from the people: so you can see them up close and appreciate how they are nice.

  • You can pay to access the cave at the Cave Store. I thought it was worth the $5 to check it out. Over a hundred slippery steps, so wear shoes with good traction. There's a walkway from the Cave Store that goes out on top of the cave, that is free and offers fantastic views.
  • Been swimming through this cave since I was a kid. Interesting structure to the caves. WARNING; Be careful of the changing tides!
  • Going down into the official cave through the cave store is $5, and it is really just some steps (~144?) down to a small area where you can see out of the cave. Ten minute trip. The area around the cave is beautiful, though, and free to explore.
  • We went to La Jolla a couple of times on our trip. We went down in the cave through The Cave Store, which was pretty neat, although I wish we could have gotten closer to the water. The beaches and the area are nice and provide plenty of walking areas. One major downside to the La Jolla area is the smell from the bird feces - it was almost unbearable with the sun beating down on it. Other than that, we didn't really swim/surf in the water, but it looked inviting. There are also a lot of seals - I liked them, however they can be noisy and I wouldn't get too close.

  • Amazing views. The steps to it and the path are not the most friendly. Also it is a bit smelly.
