La Jolla Childrens Pool

La Jolla Childrens Pool

La Jolla Childrens Pool is a small cove that served as a swimming area for children until seals and sea lions claimed it. Children no longer swim here but visitors come to this beach to watch the sea life.

You can sunbathe, hike, or enjoy a picnic overlooking the beautiful Pacific Ocean. It's a great place to watch the sunset due to the gorgeous cliffs and palm trees.
