The water is very turbulent here I doubt you would want to swim. But it is the prettiest beach I've seen. Large crashing waves, sandy beaches, and huge rocks. Go to Coronado Island for a calm beach experience:-)

As far as we can tell, this is one of San Diego's quieter beach spots. It's nestled in a residential neighborhood. Very few services, but a nice, natural stretch of beach with big boulders.

Some of the best scenery at a La Jolla beach. The beach is down below the road, so be prepared to go down stairs to get to the sand. Great waves for boogie boarding and rocks for searching for little creatures. Some people fishing and...More

It'll be fantastic.We were there over New Year's, & while we didn't have an interest in braving really cold water, there were plenty of surfers and swimmers wearing wetsuits in the surf. June is perfect for most.
