  • Waves were crashing against the caves and seals and sea lions were all laying around. We got up close and personal with them. I recommend you take a jacket if you go toward evening.  more »

  • Everytime my family stays in La Jolla we walk down the coast to this place. It's a fun mini-adventure! There are a lot of stairs to get into the cave, and it's a tight squeeze but worth it! Does not cost much either. Totally worth the visit if you got 30 minutes to an hour available. Check it out for sure!
  • Claustrophobics need not go, long cramped steps up and down, very narrow walkway. Carrying a baby or toddler would be difficult. Great view of the ocean from the cave though. Not a bad price for the fun.
  • It's a fun place to visit. Next time I come to the cave, I'll go on land and walk down to the stairs. I was on the kayak tour through Everyday California. I enjoyed it!
  • Kind of a tourist trap. It was ok but not worth the $5 to get in. The wooden stairs are quite slippery, I fell even though I was holding on to the handrail. The view at the bottom is no better than what you can see in other free areas.
  • Really beautiful scenery surrounded by countless photo opportunities. A great place for watching the ocean or seeing kayakers and snorklers interacting with sea lions in the Pacific Ocean. The coast walk trail is definitely worth the hike too!
