La Jolla Cove San Diego California

Walking on La Jolla Cove, Alligator Head Arch and Boomer Beach

La Jolla Cove

This is a magical place you have to visit if you are visiting San Diego, California. La Jolla

We started our walk right in front of La Jolla Underwater Park as you can see on the map, then we went down on Coast Blvd, we walked to the beach where you can find the Alligator Head Arch then we reached Boomer Beach where we can see wild lions and their babies. You will that in this video.


La Jolla Cove area has so many attractions, great restaurants, great local shops, and a big pack right in front of the ocean. It’s a very busy place in the weekend.

The Cove is protected as part of a marine reserve; underwater it is very rich in marine life and is popular with snorkelers, swimmers, and scuba divers. You will also find many people on kayaks in guided groups.

Things to do at La Jolla Cove

It is recommended to arrive early because parking is always an issue. But is a wonderful spot to go with the family because you can do many things, such as:

  • going to the beach
  • build sandcastles
  • tide pooling in winter months
  • viewing the sea lions
  • snorkeling
  • scuba diving in the ecological reserve
  • ocean swimming
  • sunbathing
  • walking the coastal boardwalk.

Restrooms and showers are also available right outside La Jolla Cove beach.


  • Parking space is really limited, so arrive early otherwise you will not find any parking space or you could park up by the streets and walk down to the beach.
  • Do not get close to the baby sea lions, sea lions are territorial and they will protect their babies.
  • Do not feed the sea lions.
  • Fishing is not permitted, do not destroy the ecosystem, this is a marine reserve. If you do you might get cited by the local police.
