The coastal village of La Jolla is dramatic and beautiful. There are caves and cliffs that edge the sea shore, in some places covered with seals and sea lions, pelicans, and many other birds. You often see dolphins jumping in the waves, sometimes near the many surfers that enjoy select surfing spots. Our main beaches are next to a Marine Life Sanctuary, so you can go snorkeling and see exquisite sea creatures. (The Scripps Aquarium is located here, where you can see up close all the marine life that lives here.) At La Jolla Shores you can rent kayak boats and one of the companies will give you a tour by kayak of the coast cliffs.
The village of La Jolla grew up in the 1920s as a popular spot for Hollywood stars to stay in. They stayed at the La Valencia hotel, and performed at the La Jolla Playhouse. So, there is a little village, with many wonderful shops and restaurants, right next to the sea.
