San Diego Logo

San Diego's own La Jolla Cove has been ranked eighth out of the country's top beaches by TripAdvisor.

San Diego’s very own La Jolla Shores has recently been voted #8 for Best U.S. Beaches by TripAdvisor.com. It’s no surprise that this favorite spot among locals and visitors made the list.

Located just north of San Diego, La Jolla Cove or “The Cove” as it is known, offers a visually stunning beach that is perfect for swimming, diving and snorkeling. The ecologically protected waters prevent surf boards, boogie boards or boats thus allowing a peaceful and tranquil opportunity to explore the incredible marine life below which include yellow-tail, rays and even leopard sharks. Above the water, you will see the many sea lions, pelicans and seagulls.

The beach is small but Scripps Park offers a large grassy area for picnics, walking or just hanging out for the day. Walk along the walkway and enjoy the rugged cliffs and beautiful coastline around The Cove. Lifeguards are on duty and bathroom and shower facilities are available. Parking is a premium, but there are several paid lots located throughout town.

A great way to enjoy La Jolla is to rent a kayak or paddleboard and explore the waters and caves around The Cove while getting up close and personal with the locals below water. There are countless places to grab a quick bite or sit down and dine at one of the many award winning San Diego restaurants while enjoying the beautiful views of The Cove and beyond.

La Jolla lodging is available from budget friendly San Diego hotels to 5-star resorts and everything in between, so take the opportunity to visit this gorgeous San Diego attraction and see why it was voted amongst the Top Beaches Nationwide.
