  • See California Sea Lions up close, explore tide pools, enjoy a shallow beach with the kids, this is a great place to explore.  more »
  • You can get here two ways, by kayak or SUP (private or rental) from LA Jolla Shores about 1 mile away. You cannot launch from the cove. The other way is to swim in to them but wear a wetsuit and fins ...  more »

  • 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.
