ENJOY A DAY AT THE FAMOUS LA JOLLA BEACH
There’s no way to talk about San Diego without mentioning the beaches, famous for their clear waters and white sand.
Coronado Beach, Pacific Beach, Mission Beach, Ocean Beach are some that we can highlight.
But in the post we strongly recommend that you get to know La Jolla, which is about 20km from downtown San Diego, but worth the trip.
It is the stronghold of the rich and famous, being known as one of the most expensive m² in the USA!
But the focus here is on natural beauty and this is abundant in La Jolla, which has 4 great beaches: Windansea, La Jolla Coves, La Jolla Shore and Black Sand Beach.
One of the characteristics of the beaches of La Jolla is that they are rocky. This guarantees a beauty to them, but also difficult access in some cases – Black Sand Beach, for example.
