This is a very nice oceanfront park in La Jolla. Lots of restaurants and shopping within walking distance. Great view and close to the seals.

Very clean and plenty of space for everyone to enjoy the area. At sunset the ocean view is amazing but don't forget to turn around and see the tall palm trees and the lights from the area buildings.

When exploring the quaint town of La Jolla, be sure to duck off the main street to get a taste of the coast. There is access to the beach as well as an elevated walking path with a view of the water below. Sea lions lounging on the boulders are the main attraction. It can be aromatic, but the view... More

This is nice park above the Ocean. You get a cool breeze and there is plenty of room to run around and play sports.

We were looking for a nice viewpoint and found this in the travel guide. It offers a great view down the bluff. There are also a lot of animals to watch, including seals and see gulls. This comes however with a price: there is a stench that sometimes feels unbearable. I pity the locals - dining outside may be spoiled.

Perched high above the ocean surface, the park is a lovely place to relax and enjoy they sound of the beach. Access to the sand is available along the pathway at various locations, but some of the 'paths' are a little slippery. Get your cameras ready because you are likely to see sea lions rolling in the waves or lounging... More

This is a small but beautiful park. We love walking along the cliff and around the park. It is a great place for a picnic or to just relax. What really stinks is that dogs are not allowed in the park after 9am. Even if they are leashed and very well behaved. I was approached by park personnel at 9:15... More
