La Jolla “Village” is very popular with those that want easy access to all the delights that “Downtown” La Jolla offers.
The attractions of La Jolla village are almost too many to mention, the shopping is varied and upscale with shops like Brooks Bros., Armani, Tommy Bahama and a whole host of small specialty stores.
The dining is pretty fabulous too, with dozens and dozens of top class establishments covering almost every palate and taste.
Hotel accommodation is top class, with the venerable La Valencia Hotel being probably the best of the best.
In addition there are some 40 art galleries! The “Village” is the oldest section of La Jolla dating back to 1888, originally settled by local San Diegans wanting a weekend cottage by the sea.
La Jolla Beaches are some of the nicest and most interesting in the world!
La Jolla Cove – A small beautiful beach, tucked between towering sandstone cliffs, with tide pools and caves. Excellent swimming and diving. Ellen Browning Scripps Park is perfect for picnics.
The Children’s Pool – A breakwater keeps the water here gentle, unfortunately, swimming and diving is prohibited due to pollution created by (delightful) seals.
