Children's Pool was intended to attract divers and families with children, but the beach is most popular with sea lions. Stroll the paved walkway atop the coastal rocks and watch the waves blocked by a wall. After a swim, relax and observe the sea lions. If you're lucky, you might see a mother caring for her cubs. The area is free to enter, but check with local lifeguards and authorities about the water conditions before diving in. Put Children's Pool on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our San Diego day trip planning site.
Children's Pool reviews
Too many people allowed in water for sea lions and seals.
You didn't vacation right if you didn't spend a few minutes or an hour just feeling the breeze and capturing the once in a life views of Sea lions enjoying a morning/afternoon lounge in the sun. Lots of places to walk along the coast and food places close by if you become fatigued by the San Diego weather. Every time I come out here, I see photographers with all sorts of cameras trying to get the picturesque feels of nature and what the area brings to residents and tourists. You feel more in tune with the oceans energy and gives you the piece of mind that everything is going to be alright.
