La Jolla Cove


La Jolla Cove - Location

The California coastline just north of Point Loma and Cabrillo National Monument is the location of La Jolla Cove. La Jolla (say, "la HOY-ya") Cove is a small and beautiful bay, with tide pools, a sandy beach, and plenty of wildlife.

La Jolla Cove

At La Jolla Cove, we enjoyed seeing Harbor Seals, Shore Crabs, Cormorants, and Periwinkles.

A Ravine leading into La Jolla Cove

We also enjoyed the many spring flowers along the slopes of this ravine. This ravine carried a small stream into La Jolla Cove. Many surface drainages in the San Diego metropolitan area lead into the ocean, making it especially important for all of us to avoid putting chemicals and other pollution into these drainages. Many of the plants and animals found along the shores of La Jolla Cove could be destroyed by such pollution. That is why it is so important for us to keep La Jolla Cove clean.
