La Jolla Shores is a beautiful, sandy beach spread out along the coast just south of downtown La Jolla and La Jolla Cove. There are several family-friendly activities available there at Kellogg Park: a large playground, picnic tables, a grassy area with barbecues, and bonfire pits right on the beach – and don’t forget the water activities! Kayakers, boaters, scuba divers, and surfers are all welcome here. Downtown La Jolla Shores is just a 5-minute walk away, where you’ll find plenty of shops and restaurants.
La Jolla Cove is definitely the most well known beach in La Jolla - and arguably the area that our beautiful little coastal town is known for. Its beautiful, crystal-clear water and warm swimming temperatures year-round make it one of the most picturesque options for enjoying a day at the beach. There are a number of activities and things to do at La Jolla Cove, including snorkeling, diving, watching the sea lions, checking out sea caves, and kayaking. Visitors can spend the day down at the beach, or in the grassy shade of Ellen Browning Scripps Park.
Welcome to Windansea Beach, where the sand is soft, the water is stunning and the surfers abound. There’s a good reason the locals frequent often and why so many San Diego wedding parties come to have their photographs taken here; its picturesque landscape creates the perfect setting. Dogs are allowed here after 6 pm. During fall and winter time, they can come earlier starting at 4 pm.
