With a dramatic coastline boasting spectacular views, it’s no surprise that La Jolla is one of the most popular beach destinations in California. Surrounded on three sides by the sea and backed by the steep slopes of Mt. Soledad, La Jolla’s coastal profile and quaint village lifestyle evokes a Mediterranean feel. With a unique microclimate that rarely drops below 50 degrees or exceeds 90 degrees, combined with unmatched natural beauty, an upscale casual vibe and world-class attractions, La Jolla lives up to its nickname as "the jewel" of San Diego.
La Jolla’s biggest draw for locals and tourists alike, are the beaches. During the summer and autumn months, the surf is relatively gentle, with warm waters in 70s. Swimmers, snorkelers, scuba divers and surfers can enjoy the local beaches at La Jolla Shores, the Cove and Windansea.
