If you love ocean swimming or snorkeling best place to go is La Jolla cove.Lots of seals and fish.Early mornings you can sometimes see some dolphins.Cove to La Jolla pier is 1.5 miles.

You can have some coffee after wards at the Living Room cafe!

Typical tourist spot that is still totally worth it...and free! May 06, 2011
If you can find parking, which isn't as hard as people make it out to be, you can spend the whole afternoon here, or just meander by in a half hour. The snorkling is the best here in all of San Diego, and the caves make for great exploring. Be sure to go down into Sunny Jim's cave. Count the steps on the way down.

Wanna see one of San Diego's top hidden towns, that locals just never make it out to themselves. I don't know how many people that say "I never been here or I wish I knew how cool it is out here". Yeah well, TBUDDY friends will get heads up privileges just by getting the scoop here. When you arrive, you will already have experienced the sd sun, people, and breeze. The best part is the sea lions as stated by another tbuddy reviewer, and I love the smooth, cool, historic rocks that many have traveled to view as they either get splashed or snap shots of the scenery. You decide, and not everyone can make it down there because they might be scared, older, or who knows...children must be accompanied, not so safe.
palm trees baby!

If you're driving, get there EARLY (for parking...most is free but that fills up quick and you're stuck paying to park at the garage up the hill near Prospect)! The cove has some great snorkel sites and the water can be up to 30-40 feet visability on a good day. There are some great animals to see, under and above water. Sea lions, pelicans, ground squirrels, girabaldi, lobsters, etc... The scuba diving is great just north of there at La Jolla Shores. Water is always chilly, have a spring suit in the summer, a full suit in the winter. There are a lot of places that rent kayaks for about $28/2 hours. They'll usually drop them off and pick them up for you at La Jolla Shores. From there you can paddle over to the cove in about 15 mins, a beautiful, relaxing ride.

As far as 'caves', they're more like carved out areas in the rock, not the cave you would imagine. If the surf is calm and the tide is low, you can carefully navigate through some of them, but if you've never been, I'd suggest getting a guide with the kayaks or snorkel tours to go in.

Near Prospect street in La Jolla is the big, wide ocean. The seals bask in the sun and there's a long walkway along the cost to stroll, jog or just take pictures at.
Lined up along the water!

My old stomping grounds! We used to do triathlon training here, by swimming from the beach to the cove and back. There is a great and really romantic steakhouse right on the cove as well, perfect for that special dinner with a view of the coast.

Ahhh, I used to go there every weekend when I lived in San Diego! La Jolla is SUCH a treasure. I loved sitting on one of the benches and looking out at the beautiful view and people watching. Nice memories!
