Beautiful Sight
Aug. 2021
We actually did not go into the caves but admired them from afar. We saw a lot of people snorkeling and kayaking. The water was beautiful. We also got to see some Sea Lions laying around enjoying the sun.

La Jolla cave
May 2021
When we went there, there was some construction going on, so we had to park the car on the street up or down from where actual location of the store as the entrance. Just reminding you all, you have to go down over 140 steps of stairways, means you have to come back up. Our legs were so sore later that day at night and the next day for climbing those steps up.

Fun to Explore

We walked through this area to see the seals, which were plentiful. Fun watching them interact and seeing waves crashing onto the rocks.

Great experience from the water
Aug. 2020
Best experienced on a kayak or swimming in the warm, summer water! The sea caves have plenty of flat-top rocks swimmers can sit or stand on. Which means that when the tide is low, your kayak can easily get beached on the rock....fair warning.

Awesome!

This was an awesome visit. Its a real hassle to get parking though but once you take care of that its a really cool experience. You can go kayaking to go into the caves or go snorkeling. You can just relax and watch it all (which is what I did). There are a few restaurants there as well.

Incredible excursions. Loved seeing the caves. Adjacent to the ocean so you get all the best views. They are lively and lovely. I was in awe of the beauty.

Great visit to the caves
Feb. 2020
We parked in a hotel's lot across from the caves for $10 an hour since parking is at a premium near the Coves and caves. The seals and sea lions were plentiful on a sunny February day. We paid and signed waivers at the Cave Store to go down to a platform open to the sea within the rock cave. Hard to say it's not worth it, but you walk down a flight of 145 steps to arrive at a platform about 15 x15 feet. It's dark and felt kind of like a let down. There was a seal on the inside of the cave but there is little light to see. The tunnel down is very tight in spots. People over 5 ft 7 inches had to duck in spots. Then back up 145 steps. Steps can be sandy and slippery hence the waiver. Certainly doable for most people. There is an outside platform on the outside of the cave for viewing. All in all a wonderful visit and highly recommend going to see coves and caves.

Caves in the morning!
Feb. 2020 • Business
The caves here are lovely. You can only reach one by foot-the Sunny Jim cave which charges a $5 entrance fee and makes you sign a waiver. Other than that, the other caves can be reached by kayak. Still really beautiful!

This is a great pace to visit, and looking at the caves hollowed out by the water and waves is really quite neat. I highly recommend it!
