Located at 8200 Camino del Oro, La Jolla Shores is a
sandy beach around a mile long, nearby to a
residentual house. Throughout the summertime, the
waves at this beach are usually the most gentle of
all San Diego beaches, although the rip currents can
be very strong at times.
For this extremely reason, beginner scuba classes are held
at La Jolla Shores. The grassy park of Kellogg
Park lies behind the primary lifeguard station
and provides an excellent location for picnicking. A
large cement boardwalk parallels a large location of the
beach between the sand and the park.
The beach of La Jolla Shores is surrounding to the San
Diego La Jolla Underwater Ecological Reserve. The
removal of items from this area along with fishing
are forbidden. The Scripps Pier lies at the north
end of the beach, although the pier isn’t really open to
the general public.
Within the City limits, La Jolla Shores has the only
beachfront boat launch. Little boats can be launched
straight into the browse at foot of Avenida de la Playa,
which is south of the lifeguard station. This can
be a rough surface area, so you might have to have
a 4 wheel drive car.
If you like to surf, there are defined locations on
the beach where the waves tend to be little. For
diving, the south end of the beach is widely
used by scuba driving classes.
During the summer months, La Jolla Shores can tend
be really crowded. You must try to go in the morning,
as the crowds aren’t as bad. This is a great beach
during those hot summer season days, with plenty to do
for your entire family.
