La Jolla Beach Trail Map

The La Jolla Beach Trail, also known as the La Jolla Coast Walk, runs along one of the most beautiful beaches in the San Diego area. This ultra-popular destination can get crowded even during the week, so plan ahead to deal with parking and crowds.


If you can navigate through the many tourists, you'll enjoy a beautiful ramble with spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean! Some sections of the hike follow elevated boardwalks, including some staircases, while others follow dirt paths along the coast.

The route shown here incorporates the La Jolla Coast Walk Trail as a part of the overall route, but it extends farther than just the basic coast walk.
