La Jolla attraksjoner
Ellen Browning Scripps Park is often called the most photographed park in San Diego, and once you arrive, you’ll understand why. Blue ocean, green grass and towering palm trees set the scene.
Along with plenty of space to run and play games like Frisbee, there’s also a walkway along the bluff overlooking the ocean. Low tide at Shell Beach, located at the south end of Ellen Browning Scripps Park, is a great tide pooling spot. Keep an eye out for seals and sea lions snoozing on the rocks offshore. The park is a popular wedding site and a number of events take place there including the popular family friendly outdoor Summer Concerts by the Sea, held Sundays throughout summer.
You don’t have to be a kid to love Children’s Pool Beach. This small beach is partially protected by a seawall, and in fact, the beach isn’t just popular with people. During much of the year seals and sea lions can be found on or near the beach, as the Seal Rock reserve is just offshore. Take a walk along the seawall and enjoy views of La Jolla and the Pacific Ocean.
Swimming and scuba diving is allowed at Children’s Pool Beach. Divers like the beach because of reefs just offshore, but those same reefs can intensify already strong currents. Swimmers need to be careful. Lifeguards are on duty year-round from 9am to dusk.
See what life is like under the ocean without getting wet at the Birch Aquarium at Scripps, which contains more than 60 tanks teeming with colorful marine life. Along with coral reefs, sharks and jellyfish exhibits, the two-story, 70,000 gallon kelp forest will capture your attention. Hands-on displays, exhibits and dailyfeeding presentations offer the chance to learn about ocean science while having fun.<//p>
Birch Aquarium at Scripps is home to more than 5,000 specimens that represent more than 380 speciesof fishes and invertebrates. Tide-Pool Plaza has three tide pools where visitors can touch and learn about residents that include starfish, hermit crabs, sea cucumbers, and lobsters. Docents are on hand to answer questions. Tide-Pool Plaza comes with the added perk of a Pacific Ocean view.
With 17 miles of coastline, San Diego is known for its scenic beaches. Everyone has their favorites, making it hard for visitors to choose. But if you’re a surfer, or just like to watch them in action, save time for a trip to Windansea Beach.
It’s one of the more crowded beaches, but for a good reason. Most locals agree it provides the area’s most consistent surfing conditions. It doesn’t matter if you are young or old, a guy or girl, surfing is a part of life in San Diego. Underwater reefs help create the surf breaks that surfers enjoy here. Swimming is also allowed at the beach, but swimmers need to be careful. Windansea Beach is also known for its moderate to severe shore break. That means there can be hard breaking surf near the shoreline, so swimmers need to use caution when getting in or out of the water.
If you ever wondered what California might have looked like before so many people decided to call it home, Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve provides a glimpse back in time.
This wild stretch of 2,000 acres provide a living, growing picture of what San Diego looked like before it was developed. Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve is home to miles of beaches, chaparral plants, Torrey pine trees and a lagoon used by migrating seabirds. There are eight miles of trails and a Visitor Center. Free, docent led, tours are given on Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays at 10am and 2pm. They run an hour to an hour and a half in length. There are some rules you should know before you visit. No food or drink, except water, is allowed in the Reserve above the beach. A "pack it in-pack it out" policy applies in the upper Reserve area. Dogs are not permitted, although service dogs are allowed.
