Black’s Beach (1 Mile)

Within walking distance of our La Jolla hotel, Black’s Beach is one of Southern California’s more secluded sections of shoreline and is not accessible by car. Though renowned as San Diego’s only clothing-optional beach, the true allure of Black’s Beach lies in its fast, powerful waves that attract the region’s best surfers.

La Jolla Shores (2.5 Miles)

A mile-long beach featuring white sand, scenic views, and gentle waves great for casual surfing or kayaking. Snorkelers are likely to see stingrays, schools of bright orange fish, and the occasional small and harmless leopard shark. Beyond the sand, La Jolla Shores is family-friendly with a beach playground for kids and a grassy lawn area for picnicking.

La Jolla Cove (4.7 Miles)

This ecologically-protected area provides a natural elevated walkway for visitors to stroll above the ocean and groups of frolicking sea lions. It’s a wonderful spot to relax, unwind from the day, and take in the panoramic sunset.
