The Childrens Pool Beach is a man made cove that was donated to the city of La Jolla in 1923 so that the children of the area would have some place safe to swim.
The beach is now home to another breed of children, as for the last ten
years the beach has been taken over by sea lions and harbor seals. They come to the beach to rest as the cove and beach are protected from the strong waves.
This isn't really a beach to go swimming at due to the contamination from
the seals and sea lions. You might see people scuba diving etc. but personally I wouldn't be all the eager.
If you do go, make sure you stay at least 20 feet back from the sea lions.
They tend to be protective of their territory and might bite you if you
get too close.
You will find the seals and sea lions at 850 Coast Boulevard, between
Jenner Street and Girard Avenue.
After you are done at Childrens Pool Beach, make sure you explore La Jolla. It's a beautful little Californian city and should be seen from the beach, you can walk to the main area, where you will find parks, shops and resturants.
