What are the nicest beaches for families in Los Angeles?
What better way to soak up the sun, than at the best beaches in Los Angeles. From family friendly beaches to a surfing oasis, Los Angeles and the southern California beaches just south of Los Angeles have got you covered. Just south of Los Angeles in the picturesque beach community of La Jolla is Windansea Beach.
Windansea Beach is perfect for sunbathing, people watching, snorkeling, surfing, and scuba diving. Once you drive up to the beach you will immediately notice the iconic palm tree hut which provides just the right amount of shade for anyone that is looking to lay in the sun but also enjoy activities under a shaded area. Locals call this hut the surf shack with a palm roof and it is so iconic it has been designated as a historical landmark. When you go to the beach, one of the hardest things to do is to find parking. Windansea not only has designated parking spots but also its residential location making finding parking in the neighborhood a breeze. During any summer day the beach is full of locals and tourists gathering on the sand and looking for the packs of dolphins that often come close to the shoreline.
Where are the seals in La Jolla?
People come to La Jolla to see the gorgeous homes, upscale shops, unparalleled restaurants, shimmering beaches, and the population of wild seals and sea lions. The marine life is always on display. In fact these mammals are almost always perched on the beaches and rocks along the Cove beach and south to the Children’s Pool and to the sea caves.
Even though you can pretty much sea the seals anywhere along Coast Boulevard. The seals and sea lions mostly linger on the rocks in the Cove or lay on the sand adjacent to the rocks. On most days there will be packs of seals swimming in the Cove waters or barking in the caves as they pose on the rocks.
The great things about these marine mammals is that you can get close and take stunning pictures. If you don’t see them right away keep walking along the wooden rail and they will be sure to be there. If you want to get up close, take the stairs on the top of the Cove down onto the beach and you can get within feet of these slippery animals.
If you don’t see them on the Cove beach, keep walking along the coast sidewalk that looks over the ocean and south past the lifeguard tower. You can hop the small rock wall to walk on the rocks where the sea lions hang out. Even though these sea lions don’t shy away from human contact, it is illegal to feed or touch them. However feel free to walk along the rocks and take a bunch of pictures.
