This wide, mile-long stretch of sand is home to San Diego's only 24-hour dog beach, and a municipal pier open for fishing.
La Jolla Cove
Located within the San Diego-La Jolla Underwater Park Ecological Reserve, this small, protected spot is full of marine life.
Formerly Torrey Pines City Beach, this two-mile stretch sits at the base of 300-foot cliffs. The safest access is from the beaches to the north and south.
