La JollaUnited States of America

La Jolla is an affluent but relaxed and picturesque northern suburb of San Diego, best known for its beaches and dramatic coastline.

La Jolla, pronounced “La Hoya”, means “The Jewel” in Spanish and certainly lives up to its name. With upmarket boutiques, galleries and restaurants, pretty La Jolla offers an indulgent, romantic escape. The great weather and clear waters draw the summer crowds to La Jolla’s beaches all year long. Go swimming, surfing, scuba diving and kayaking, or simply laze on the water’s edge. Sea lions and seals will show you how it’s done; they sunbathe in La Jolla Cove.
