Attraction

Spend an afternoon in La Jolla watching sea lions swimming, bobbing and sunbathing. Then grab a coffee and drift down the beach to La Jolla Cove. There's a little pathway to the left of the walkway that leads down to the beach.

Sit on the sand and kick off your sandals. Breathe the fresh ocean air, hear the waves crash and listen to the amazing sounds of sea lions honking at each other next to the harbour seals.

You can also head to the far left of the cove, where you can climb through a gap in the battered rocks to find a private area for amazing photo opportunities. For the best view of the sea lions, visit at low tide.
