  • We found the Cave Store upon recommendation from a friend. We would not have know to go here if not for the recommendation. The name is misleading. The "store" is just the entrance to the stairs that ...  more »
  • The cave store is worth a visit when at La Jolla. It’s worth the $5 to see the cave under the store! Beautiful view and interesting story or you can kayak and see the cave as well!  more »

  • A cute little shop with a walkway down to a cave. There's nothing super special about the cave but it was fun and unique to go see. There are plenty of stairs, so just remember if you go down you must also come back up. 😉
  • Limited parking, but a nice shop featuring original works by local artisans. The cave ($5 admission) is a unique feature with some history and geology.
  • Nice quick 5-minute stop over if you're in town but I wouldn't make a destination just to come see it. Nice to get up close to the caves but limited platform.
  • My kids and out of town family found this spot to be such an awesome hidden secret type adventure. It was small. 145 steps down but was fun!
  • So fun! $5.00 to go through to the cave and the cave was really neat! There were lots of stairs to get down to the cave but the handrails made it easy. The store had all kinds of super cute jewelry and souvenirs I wish I could have bought all of it!

Where to stay in San Diego

Offering accommodations at a wide range of price levels, San Diego is one of the easiest cities to stay in, regardless of whether you're simply passing through or hanging around for a long vacation. If you don't mind splurging, book your stay at a luxury downtown hotel or a lavish bayside resort. You can also rent a spacious private cottage within walking distance of the city's popular beaches. For a more affordable alternative, try a family-friendly hostel or quaint inn in a quiet residential area.
