Random Tips from our visit

What we observed:

  • Great way to see sea lions up close but they do smell like crap. We were thankful we had our masks on.

Time spent:

  • 1 ½ hour. We only explored the area and did not spend time in the water.

Stroller/Wagon friendly:

  • Yes


  • Flushing toilets but it’s not the cleanest restrooms.


  • Seal lion up close
  • Lots of pelicans
  • Picnic
  • Beautiful views with lots of photos ops
  • Snorkel
  • Scuba Dive
  • Kayak

What we brought:

Covid-19 Precautions?

Mask seems to be optional here. Only half of the people were wearing masks. The beaches are small so we would imagine it would be tough to social distance during the weekends. We went on a weekday and we were able to enjoy the area safely.

Should you go?

Yeah.  You can’t beat free!  The La Jolla Shoreline is pretty big.  Plenty of room to follow covid-19 guidelines and have fun.  Our kids really loved seeing all the animals around La Jolla that the cliffs home.
