La Jolla Cove located at (1100 Coast Boulevard) is a small beach, tucked between adjacent sandstone cliffs. However small, its’ extraordinary beauty makes it one of the most photographed beaches in Southern California. It is within a short walk of the commercial area of the community of La Jolla. Grassy Scripps Park is immediately adjacent and has an excellent area for picnicking. Water visibility at the Cove can sometimes exceed 30 feet, making it a popular location for scuba divers and snorklers.

La Jolla Shores, located at 8200 Camino del Oro, has the only beachfront boat launch within the city limits. In summer, waves at this beach are usually the most gentle of all San Diego beaches, although rip currents may still be strong at times. Kellogg Park, a grassy area, is located behind the main lifeguard station and is ideal for picnicking. Vehicles are allowed to drive on the sand in a very limited area at five miles per hour or less. Four wheel drive is highly recommended.

The Children's Pool, also know as “The Casa,” is located at 850 Coast Boulevard. It is a small beach partially protected by a seawall. This is a very picturesque beach with a panoramic view. During much of the year, seals and sea lions are present on or near the beach and a reserve for these marine mammals, called Seal Rock, is just offshore. The Children's Pool is within a short walk of the commercial area of the community of La Jolla.

Black's Beach is a two-mile long strip of sand with majestic cliffs up to 300 feet high. There is a glider port atop the cliff overlooking the beach where hangliders, paragliders can often be seen soaring. Access to Black's Beach is very difficult due to the high cliffs and the safest access is from adjacent beaches to the north and south. The cliffs of Black's Beach are unstable and slides can occur without warning, so it is best to stay well away from them. Although not official, some patrons of Black's Beach practice nudism.
