La Jolla Shores
Two main features of this beach make it one the most frequented dive locations in San Diego. The facilities, generally good conditions and relatively easy surf entries make the Shores a good spot for diver training. For advanced divers, there is easy access to the La Jolla submarine canyon.
The conditions are usually good, with relatively small surf and often favorable visibility. The bottom compostion is mostly sand.
This beach is often crowded with surfers, swimers, sunbathers and divers.
Be aware of your position when approaching depths over 60'. Topographical maps illustrate how the slope steepens drastically when heading toward the submarine canyon.
It is always a good idea to check with nearby lifeguards for updated conditions and hours of lifeguard operation before diving at the Shores.
Ample free parking spots (350 spaces) spots are available provided in a paved lot next to the beach. A large grass area makes for an ideal place to meet, set up camp and don your gear.
For the non-diver, there are numerous shops, and hotels in nearby downtown La Jolla. Mostly as a result of La Jolla, San Diego is often referred to as one of the best places for "topside activities".What's Nearby
