La Jolla Cove in SoCal is one of San Diego’s most suitable beaches for kayaking, snorkeling and scuba-diving – the water here is calm and ecologically protected, providing a safe home for colorful garibaldi, yellow-tail, rays and even leopard sharks. Because the water is a protected marine reserve, surfboards, boogie boards and other flotation items are not allowed. The beach itself is small, but there is a nice, open grassy expanse close by.
This area has first-class golf courses, art galleries and seals that share the dramatic ocean-side landscape of La Jolla. Swimmers, snorkelers and kayakers dip into La Jolla Cove, where the protected waters shield an array of marine-life and sea caves the cliffs. The evenings are ideal for visiting popular attractions in the area, such as the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, the family-friendly Birch Aquarium and the acclaimed La Jolla Playhouse.
