4. Children's Pool

The Children's Pool, also called Casa Beach, was created in 1931 when local philanthropist Ellen Browning Scripps donated money to build a seawall. This concrete breakwater keeps the surf out and the waves gentle. For more than 50 years, it was an ideal swimming beach for children. Today, however, swimming is strongly discouraged since California harbor seals have moved onto the beach. Sightseers can walk out onto the concrete breakwater to view the waves crashing against it and for a better view of the seals. But be careful at high tide or during stormy weather, as people have been washed out to sea! Parking is very limited during the summer. Restrooms and showers are available.
