San Diego's most desirable spot for swimming, diving and snorkeling. The water is calm and the cove is ecologically protected. There is also a world famous dive site that is located in the La Jolla ecological preserve.

Yes but it would be better to swim at the Children's Beach very close by within walking distance because there are life guards on duty. If you have not swum in the Pacific before it is best to swim where the are life guards because rip currents are common and unless you are experienced, you may not know what to do. They will also advise if there are other things to be aware of for the day such as high waves, sting rays, etc. The average water temp in the summer is in the low 70's.
