Although every beach can be rough at times, if you want to spend time on a beach with gentle waves, choose your discount hotel in San Diego near La Jolla Shores. Just a mile long, this beach borders a residential area and the San Diego La Jolla Underwater Ecological Reserve. For both of these reasons, the beach is an excellent place to take beginner scuba lessons. But be careful – because this is a nature reserve, you can’t remove any objects or do any fishing in the area.
Even if you are not into scuba, there are other reasons to pick a discount hotel near La Jolla Shores. You can take a walk from your hotel down to the beach and enjoy a leisurely stroll along the wide cement boardwalk. Take a picnic with you and pick a spot on the grassy area of Kellogg Park. Afterwards, walk the ½ mile down to the Steven Birch Aquarium to see some of the species that are part of the protected reserve area.
