La Jolla Farms is one of the premier locations in La Jolla, with Torrey Pines golf course at one end, the ocean on one side and the University on the other.
On the ocean side Black’s Beach – a two mile long, sandy strip (see photo) situated at the base of majestic cliffs that reach up to 300 feet high. Formally known as Torrey Pines City Beach and Torrey Pines State Beach it is jointly owned by the City of San Diego and the State of California.
Access to Black’s Beach is difficult due to the high cliffs and lack of improved stairways. There is a glider port atop the cliff overlooking the beach where Hangliders, paragliders and remote controlled gliders can often be seen soaring over.
La Jolla Farms homes are “big” and expensive with big lots.
La Jolla Farms Residents get an added bonus –
– a key to the padlock that opens the gate to private beach access to Blacks Beach – the part favored by local surfers for the unique surf breaks.
Without a key it’s a long, very steep walk!
