La Jolla Cove

Parking at La Jolla Cove can be difficult to find, especially on a weekend afternoon. The earlier you come, the better. And if you can’t find a spot along the street, there are a number of public parking garages you can pay for nearby and in the downtown La Jolla Village. Also, please make sure to show respect for beautiful sea lions that call this beach home. Remember that you can get great views and photographs of these creatures from a distance. If you see ropes posted up, it is to make sure that, on busy days, the sea lions still have space to lay out and sunbathe.
