San Diego's most desirable spot for swimming, diving and snorkeling. The water is calm and the cove is ecologically protected. There is also a world famous dive site that is located in the La Jolla ecological preserve.

We are beach lovers and La Jolla Cove was phenomenal! The water was cool and the view was beautiful. The seals were swimming nearby and the kids absolutely loved it. The water was rough in the evening, so be careful with young children.
We had heard about La Jolla Come to see the seals/aea lions. We got there early and parked in the underground parking garage for $10 for the day. There is lots to do in La Jolla. Lots of restaurants and shopping. The cove itself is...More
Wikipedia states the water smells due to fecal contamination by animals/bird and yet many people were standing in the water barefoot and swimming (barf). Wear close toed shoes and clean them as soon as you get home. However, the view is worth the smell -...More

Yes but it would be better to swim at the Children's Beach very close by within walking distance because there are life guards on duty. If you have not swum in the Pacific before it is best to swim where the are life guards because rip currents are common and unless you are experienced, you may not know what to do. They will also advise if there are other things to be aware of for the day such as high waves, sting rays, etc. The average water temp in the summer is in the low 70's.
