La Jolla Cove is located near downtown La Jolla, an upscale San Diego community known for its fine dining and high end shopping. Easily one of the most beautiful beaches in California, it is also one of the most photographed.
This is the place to go snorkeling, or scuba diving. Located within the boundaries of the San Diego La Jolla Underwater Park Ecological Reserve, marine life is abundant.
