Named one of the top 20 beaches in the nation by Travel + Leisure, this isolated section of shoreline is located just south of downtown La Jolla, steps away from a residential area. Accessible only by an unmarked staircase near Coast Boulevard and Prospect Street, the crescent-shaped beach is clean, quiet, and relatively tourist-free. The area is ideal for swimming and sunbathing, and during high tide, daring visitors dive from a rock jetty on the north side of the beach.
During your visit, head down the coast to the end of Marine Street, where an extreme shore break called the Whomp draws crowds of serious surfers.
