Children’s Pool, La Jolla, California
850 Coast Blvd. , La Jolla, CA 92037
Close to downtown La Jolla, the Children’s Pool — or the “Casa,” as locals have calledl it — is a tiny cove protected by a concrete breakwater. It was once a swimming area for children until the seals and sea lions moved in. Now visitors can enjoy the added bonus of an ongoing marine mammal show courtesy of the seals and sea lions that play in and around the shore or at Seal Rock, their offshore reserve.
Walkers and hikers can check out the trails next to Coast Boulevard. High above the beach, these paths offer panoramic views of the water and the sandstone cliffs leading down to ocean’s edge. Grassy picnic areas lie north and south of Children’s Pool. Mix with the well-to-do at La Jolla’s high-end hotels, shops, and restaurants, or spend the day near the Pacific Ocean watching the seals and sea lions as they cavort at the Children’s Pool — either way, a day well spent!
