Windansea: located at the end of Nautilus Street Windansea is a popular surfing spot for higher-level surfers because it serves up larger waves. It is also a beach that offers up amazing photo opportunities with its underwater reefs, jutting rocks and cliffs.
La Jolla Children’s Pool: Originally named as a place for children to have a protected area to swim, the sea wall began to fill with sand and is now home to an abundance of harbor seals. There is an ongoing, heated debate, on who is allowed to swim in Children’s Beach—humans or seals— and is often the site for animal right’s protestors. Despite the tension that has built up over this beach it is still a very popular tourist location to take pictures and enjoy watching the harbor seals frolic and lay in the sun.

The cove is approximately 15-30 feet deep, has a calm current and moderate temperature.
