  • La Jolla is a lovely neighbourhood to wonder around in. The houses are lovely, the beaches are beautiful and the caves are a great sight! There is also a nice path to walk along with amazing scenery!  more »
  • La Jolla is a nice place in southern California. Here the Pacific Ocean kisses the beach. On and among the rocky beach sea-lions meet swimmers and canoeists. Get a boat and enjoy the rocks and the sea...  more »
  • The natural caves of La Jolla are an attraction in themselves in. One of them can access from the inside of a local craft (upon payment of 5 dollars). Worth the pena visistarlo luck!

  • 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.
