Travel snapshots: The best beaches
LA JOLLA SHORES--HAWAII in CALIFORNIA
Crystal clear blue water? Check.
Warm (in the summertime) and clean? Check.
Good for surfing, swimming and snorkeling? Check.
Nice family-friendly environment? Check.
Kiddie playground and BBQ area? Check.
Some parking but come early to be safe? Check.
One of the most beautiful beaches in the world that will remind you of the best sandy shores of Hawaii and Mexico is right here in California! La Jolla Shores!
In my opinion, the finest beach in southern California. Well worth the hassle of trying to find a parking spot and battling the traffic into and out of La Jolla. Some of the most relaxing days I have ever experienced has been along La Jolla Shores. The beach is so desirable that on nice days, I would be so tempted to ditch my college classes at nearby UCSD and hit the Shores.
Those inclined should stay at one of the nice hotels along La Jolla Shores. There are also places nearby that rent kayaks, boats, scuba gear and surfboards. Late in the summer, the leopard sharks hang out offshore and if you time it right, it is possible to spend a morning literally swimming with the (harmless) sharks!
Muy bonita...La Jolla Shores!
