I visited La Jolla on a Wednesday around 11 am and was able to find a parking spot along Girard Street in the main shopping district however parking is limited to an hour there. So I visited the children's pool and ran back to the car, went to find some lunch and then followed the signs for La Jolla Cove and found another spot right along the ocean, that one was limited to 3 hours. There were a lot of parking cops in their little golf carts along this stretch, I'm not quite sure how they monitor how long you've been there but you might not want to test the time limits here. Parking is free, not metered, but if you think you might stay beyond the time limit, there are paid parking garages. Better to pay a few dollars than come back and find a ticket on your car. On weekends, there is no time restriction along the street near La Jolla Cove currently but be sure to check the signs.
There's aparking lot at the end of Nautilus Street which overlooks the beach. But if the lot is full, try parking up Nautilus or Bonaire.
