La Jolla was not given its name, “the jewel,” by coincidence. From the cliffs of Torrey Pines to Birdrock, La Jolla offers some of the most breathtaking coastline in the world. In addition to postcard-perfect beaches, the city is home to world-class dining, fantastic shopping and oceanfront cocktails. Perhaps the most well-known of coastal San Diego communities, La Jolla lives up to its international acclaim.
In addition to natural beauty, La Jolla is home to some of the most extraordinary homes in the world. From beachfront properties to homes with 360-degree views atop Mount Soledad, La Jolla is truly something special. Its residents, including a former presidential candidate, appreciate all it has to offer.
If you are looking for a unique cultural experience, take in a show at the La Jolla Playhouse or spend the afternoon at the Museum of Contemporary Art. Or you may be more interested in water sports, in which case you could snorkel at La Jolla Cove, take a surfing lesson at La Jolla Shores or watch the locals, young and old, at the historic surf break at Windansea Beach. Maybe you want to see ocean life at a safer distance, so you head to the Birch Aquarium.
La Jolla is an upscale beach community, with a history and beauty second to none. And who doesn’t love a “jewel?”
