One of my favorite Piers in San Diego to photograph. When looking out to the ocean from underneath the pier it looks like a doorway to heaven. Captured by millions but still remains to be one of the most picturesque place to see in San Diego. The tide ebbs below the Scripps Pier in La Jolla, California. Winter storm hits San Diego. Great place to see some great surfing by San Diego locals.
#waterlust Pacific Ocean Sunset #sunset #lajolla #goldenhour #travel #adventure LA JOLLA SHORES is one of San Diego's best and most popular beaches. Somewhat protected from the prevailing southwest wind, it's a safe, gentle spot to learn or enjoy surfing. There are year-round lifeguard services, good facilities and decent parking. Most of the formal surf schools operate here for this reason, and a lot of local kids practice their basics at the Shores before graduating to bigger and better breaks.

This particular shot was at sunrise believe it or not. A small window of clear skies made for a spectacular composition. The La Jolla coastline is nothing short of wondrous. It’s miles of sandy shores are divided up into several beaches, each with its own personality and benefits.

California 💜 Winter sunset in La Jolla. #beach La Jolla gives you some of the most beautiful views in Southern California. If you love the beach, you should definitely add this to your list! Take a walk along the cliff side paths to see an amazing collection of wildlife and plant life. There are tons of adorable California sea lions here to see here too. And, even better, the weather is great all year round. La Jolla Cove, October 2016 Beautiful spot in San Diego CA. Another great spot for photographers! Several great shots from this location and of course a great place to visit. One of the more popular places to visit is just north of this beach called La Jolla Cove where you can take a tour into one of the caves that will lead you out to the ocean. All we can do is to relax and sleep There are few things more awesome than standing at the edge of the land, staring at an incredible sunset that is breaking across the sea in front of you. I'm a fan of that stuff. :-) This was taken along the Pacific Ocean in La Jolla, CA which is well worth a visit. Just be sure and bring a camera, and stick around until sunset! From If you're looking for a glamorous place to relax in La Jolla, George's at the Cove is the place to go.
La Jolla is a little seaside city near San Diego, California, with some of my favorite beaches in the state.
At the end of a day of relaxing on the beach, go up to George's. It has a wonderful rooftop terrace with views like this of the Pacific, along with some very good California cuisine with lots of fresh ingredients.
Two tips for visiting:
1) Make a reservation! Things get pretty packed.
2) If you're on a budget, go for a later lunch instead of dinner and then stay for the sunset. The prices are much cheaper, but the views are just as nice! (#beach #colorful) A very touristy spot but worth it on the week days. Such beautiful scenes all over this area. This used to be the children's pool but turned into the deal pool. As a child we would swim in this area all the time. Great food as well down in that area so head down watch the sunset and grab a bite to eat.
Low tide love. #SanDiego #LaJolla La Jolla cove A morning spring walk along the shoreline of La Jolla. Seals, relaxing at sunset. #cutecreatures Sunset Loving #beachbound #travel #adventure #beach #sunset #colorful It's never a bad time of year for the beach in San Diego! Low tide around La Jolla Cove is pretty awesome. Great for tide pools and a chance to see the seals and sea lions up close! #endlesssummer #sandiego Scripps Pier in La Jolla during sunset  $4 to enter, walk down many steps to the cove. Wonderful place to check out the wildlife. At La Jolla ...All you have to do is seat down, relax, and wait for this gorgeous show. #BestOf5
#EndlessSummer Watching the sunset and waves come in on the beach.
Neat little beach. Mount Soledad is a prominent landmark in the city of San Diego, California, United States. The mountaintop is the site of the Mount Soledad cross, the subject of a continuing controversy over the involvement of religion in government. This spot really does have secret parking! More views from George's at the cove. Take some shelter here....
#waterlust Sea Lions sunning on the cliffs near La a Jolla Cove . Sea lions are generally found on waters of temperate regions both in the northern and Southern Hemisphere . Great place for watching seals Overlooking the Pacific from the bluff at La Jolla #travel Watching the surf in La Jolla. #beach You can get to these caves by kayak. La Jolla means the Jewel in Spanish and who would argue that there's no better name to call this place. One of La Jolla beaches and a beautiful sunset in January Originally conceived as a protected swimming area for children, the sea-walled cove began to fill with sand and eventually, sea lions and harbor seals. There is still ongoing debate over who is more entitled to this spot—children or the seals—but it does not diminish its appeal. Walk along the seawall for gorgeous 360-degree views of La Jolla and the Pacific ocean. #beach #Waterlust Sunset in La Jolla La Jolla beach, Pacific Ocean
#waterlust Cali state fish !! The La Jolla Cove is a popular spot for swimming, snorkeling and scuba diving. It is protected by ecological reserve so fishing, tubing are not allowed.
The cove is surrounded by cliffs and sea lion are often seen in deeper water or just basking on rocks. Just north of the famous La Jolla Cove, the La Jolla Caves (centered in the panorama) are some fun, unique cave formations close to the beach. The cool waters are ideal for swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving or just kayaking around. In the water, expect to see Garibaldi, the California state fish, seals and sea lions.
#lifeatexpedia Some great right handers come out if this awesome break but don't take my word for it come see it yourself! Pretty bird I the tide pools. By La Jolla. Breathtaking Nice wall art. Sea lions galore The cliffs just across from UC San Diego along the trail of the Scripps coastal reserve provide what I consider to be the best sunset viewing point in San Diego. Oftentimes from the cliffs (which overlook blacks beach to the right and the Scripps pier to the left) I can see dolphins playing near shore, surfers catching waves, or a paraglider floating into the sunset. This place is what summer evenings are all about.
#sandiego #lajolla #endlesssummer #ocean #cliffs Amazing view of the Pacific Ocean. Captured from the walkway of the Children's Pool at La Jolla Shores.
#blue #pacificocean #lajolla #sandiego #california Chilled out Sea Lions on the La Jolla rocks. Nice place to hang with friends and catch a wave. Amazing beach in San Diego. Hanging with sea life Some seals enjoying the surf and sun in La Jolla, CA. #Cali #blue #beachbound Took a trip to San Diego last summer and it was in one word a personification of San Diego itself - beautiful, laid back and rejuvenating. It was a last minute, unplanned road trip from LA but as you can guess, it turned out to be one heck of an amazing ride. Driving across the coastline was road trip paradise of course but the highlight was trying paragliding (first attempt, yay💃🏻) across the Pacific coastline, getting a bird's eye view of La Jolla at Torrey Pines.
Food 🥘 for thought: I wouldn't skip eating a meal at Taste of Himalayas while you are here! 😋 Old Sad Surfer

California This place is just crawling with critters who aren't afraid to approach you! Get in after closing.
#blue Sleeping beauty........ La Jolla, just north of San Diego. Beautiful beaches, seals and #blue skies for days #waterlust breaking dawn to catch the early waves
#surf #beachbound #early #sunrise Family beach in San Diego that offers fire pits for a special occasion. La Jolla has a marine preserve, great place to see seals, sea lions, and tons of birds. You can walk out onto the rocks and get close to the sea lions! (It stinks! So if you're sensitive to smell watch how far you go!) There's also places to swim, and see sea life! Sunset on the day we got married. Beautiful sunsets of San Diego. Love the exterior of this museum Great waves Great site for amazing sunsets near San Diego 👌🏼 Sea Caves #BeachBound Sea lions basking! La Jolla is a great place to see wildlife! Great place to see Leopard Sharks right off the beach in La Jolla. They come around August to spawn. La Jolla Beautiful day at the beach. Catching a sunset. #waterlust Awesome views of the Pacific from the Broken Trail hiking path Attended a private event at Birch Aquarium at night - beautiful and peaceful. Feb 2014 Sea lions! Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve consist of a plateau that overlook Torrey Pines State Beach. The eight mile hike of trails within the the park offers hikers great million dollar vistas that will definitely sweep you off your feet. La Jolla Shores La Jolla CA is really beautiful especially after small rain shower and a little rainbow accompaniment. Absolutely the best beach in San Diego View of the Children's Pool in La Jolla. Don't forget to say hello to the harbor seals!
#childrenspool #lajolla #sandiego #harborseals Purple wildflowers and so much blue. Best spot to watch the sunset in San Diego #beachbound The San Diego Temple is beautiful Walking around my city is still amazing even after 35 yrs #local Children's Pool was built in 1931 as a safe and secluded area for children to play in. However, the harbor seals thought it was a better sanctuary for themselves.
#childrenspool #harborseals #lajolla #sandiego #california The rock formations are breathtaking Awesome tacos! Fantastic food find in La Jolla Really good breakfast. Sage sausage, rosemary toast, eggs. This place has the best of everything-beach, surf, hang gliders, cliffs, seals but beware there is a nude beach...we found out by stumbling upon it. Lazy sea's
