Children's Pool, La Jolla

3.8
#5 of 14 in Beaches in San Diego
Children's Pool was intended to attract divers and families with children, but the beach is most popular with sea lions. Stroll the paved walkway atop the coastal rocks and watch the waves blocked by a wall. After a swim, relax and observe the sea lions. If you're lucky, you might see a mother caring for her cubs. The area is free to enter, but check with local lifeguards and authorities about the water conditions before diving in. Put Children's Pool on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our San Diego day trip planning site .
