    Wonderful place to take in the sunrise and a great place to walk the dog around. If you want to run, the distance the beach and tennis club and the pier and back is a mile.

    A bit smelly because of the sea lions but it is breathtakingly beautiful. Snorkeling here is a must, as well as a good hike along the edge of the water as far as you can go.

    Best sunset views in San Diego! Don't listen to the rumors of seals infesting the shores of La Jolla. The water is clear and this is the place to go to kayak and scuba dive. Totally worth a visit!

    Some call it "The Jewel" of San Diego. Is it because sodium pentothal once made me reveal it as the location of a stash of untold riches? Probably not. Because as far as you know, that never happened.
