The Children’s Pool – 850 Coast Blvd, La Jolla, CA

This is a place in La Jolla where you can see seals in their natural habitat right on the beach! This is called The Children’s Pool because it was originally meant for a safe beach for children to swim. However, a wall was built to help stop the waves from crashing into the shore. Now, seals have taken over the beach and it is a wonderful spot to see the seals and has fantastic views of La Jolla Beach.

Dog Beach – 3006 Sandy Ln, Del Mar, CA

Dog Beach is a great place to take the kids and the dog to get some sand and sun! This is located right next to Del Mar beach, just go a little north and you will be there in a jiffy! Just be careful, if you are walking from Del Mar Beach, sometimes the tide is too high for pedestrians to cross over to Dog Beach. So when safe, head over and see all the people with their dogs! If you are a dog lover, this is the place for you!
