explore La Jolla Cove....
This is a hidden beach cove tucked in between sea cliffs and tide pools making it a frequent stopping place for visitors such as sea lions and harbor seals! If you want to see Sunny Jim Cave, you have to enter through a staircase from a souvenir shop located at 1325 Coast Boulevard..... Apparently that is the only way in to Sunny Jim Cave.
Favorite thing: When I lived down here, this cove was called the 'Children's Pool' because the water was shallow and the waves were very small. However, a few years ago, a herd of seals discovered this beach and made it their home. So now tourists come here to watch the seals instead of swimming.
Favorite thing: The photo is of a family exploring small pools left by the tide. La Jolla is a great place for families and every one else. There is the cove, the cave, the 'village' with the shopping, the Birch Aquarium, the art musum, and best of all the beach. La Jolla is a fun place to go with much to offer.
