The location is a calm bay with diversity of the best entry of La Jolla Shores on the south side of La Jolla Shores Hotel; simply drive onto the beach and unload; parking can be problematic.
Launch through light surf (compared to the rest of the area), then LOOK DOWN. When the water is clear you'll see tiger sharks and other aquatic creatures. Off to the left are the caves - care must be taken; 1 to 2 ft swells can create a dangerous situation if you don't pay attention. If the swells are small one of the caves can be navigated. The area remained calm throughout the day and provide a very enjoyable paddle.
The Scripps Institute's Birch Aquarium and Sea World are nearby and show you up close what you just paddled over.
Heading north on 5 or if on 52 – take 52 to Torrey Pines Rd. then Right on Calle De La Plaza. And finally left on Camino Del Oro to the beach.
