1. La Jolla Cove

Near downtown La Jolla and tucked between cliffs is the La Jolla Cove. It is a small beach, but a longtime favorite for swimming, snorkeling and scuba diving. Because the beach faces north, is protected from ocean swells. With great visibility, sometimes as deep as 30 feet, the Cove is home to the underwater marine reserve where all marine life remains untouched. Lifeguards watch this area carefully. Each September since 1916, the annual Rough Water Swim attracts swimmers of all ages. Ellen Browning Scripps Park is located up above the Cove with lots of room for picnicking, strolling, or just enjoying the spectacular view. Restrooms and showers are available. Parking is limited.
