Though swimming is now discouraged at the beach, it's a great place to take kids so they can get a look at the resident harbor seals. At low tide you can do some tide-pooling west of the sea wall.

Visited for the first time and it was so much fun! The seals are adorable and it was great to see them in their natural environment.
It was pretty "fishy" smelling but you'll ignore it when you see seal heads pop up from the waters or watch the plump ones sunbathe :)
Can't wait to visit again!
(Parking can be a pain though, but that's with any beach parking. Be patient!)

Great place to come when in la Jolla, walk out on the way and check out a view of the sea lions. Watch out for the smell! Parking anytime any day will be awful! Careful when it says two hour parking they mean it! Enjoy lunch in a bench here as well

This was a fairly nice little area on the coast. There were a number of medium and large rocks that made tide-pooling an interesting and effective endeavor. It is right next to a number of hotels and motels, so it is generally busy when the weather is warm enough.
