Children’s Pool La Jolla

Children’s Pool in La Jolla, San Diego, is a unique and controversial coastal enclave that has become a haven for both seals and visitors alike. Originally designed as a protected swimming area for children, it now serves as a popular gathering spot for harbor seals, offering a rare opportunity to observe these marine mammals up close in their natural habitat. The beach’s crescent-shaped cove, enclosed by a seawall, provides a calm and sheltered environment where seals rest, nurse their pups, and bask in the sun. Visitors can admire the adorable and playful seals from a safe distance, fostering a deeper appreciation for the region’s diverse marine life. Though the presence of seals has sparked debates and management challenges, Children’s Pool remains a captivating destination that highlights the delicate balance between human enjoyment and environmental preservation in San Diego’s coastal landscape.
