The Attractive Tourist Activity of Snorkeling at La Jolla Cove

Image
Snorkeling is a great activity for both locals and tourists that helps connect to nature while improving health. In California coastal life, snorkeling is a favorite activity of water lovers. Few things are better than being outside in the warm weather and plunging into the ocean to see the world that exists under the waves. La Jolla Cove is considered one of the best places to snorkel in Southern California.  The rock reefs are close to the beach requiring only a few feet of swimming before seeing the wildlife. Even though there are more advanced places to snorkel, the cove offers calm waters, life guards, and all the amenities for beginners. Because one can paddle around the cove without much effort most age ranges enjoy snorkeling at the cove. This is one reason why visitors flock to the area.   To the north are rock formations you can swim out and crawl upon. Try and be safe as the ocean waves can push you right into rocks so it is best to try and climb on them from

Just South of La Jolla Cove and Beyond the Sandy Beach Pictures

Just down the coast from La Jolla Cove is another beach that attracts local and out of town visitors. Walking along the slippery ocean covered rocks you will come to a few enclaves that contain the tide’s residue of sea life and wonders. The sun sparkles off of the ripples of small wading pools while sea creatures wait for their return home.  Clams huddle together and starfish kiss the rocks. Nature’s handiwork creates smooth stones that resemble water washed deserts. As the ocean waves assault the coast a few visitors have traversed hopping stones to make their way to new sites by anyone but locals.  Enjoy the pictures
