La Jolla Shores Beach
Ideal for boogie boarding, bodysurfing, surfing, picnics, jogging, walking and swimming.
Features the most gentle waves out of all San Diego beaches, for this reason it's the most
popular spot for scuba lessons. The best location for young children to play is south
toward the entrance at Avenida de la Playa - the waves tend to be smaller,
which discourages most of the boogie boarders and crowd.
Life Guards are on duty, everyday, from 9:00 a.m. to near dusk.
The lifeguard tower is located next to the main parking lot
at the foot of Calle Frescota. There are separate water areas reserved
for swimming and surfing Restrooms and Showerts are located 100
yards north and south of the main lifeguard tower. Parking and the boardwalk
is disabled accessible. Containers for beach fires are
provided during summer months, they are available on a first come,
first served basis
