    "I cannot express in words the magic I felt during my stay at La Jolla Shores Hotel...The room, staff service, maid service, and food were superior to other high dollar San Diego hotels...I loved this early spring vacation and look forward to a fall escape soon."

  • Fall Is The Perfect Time For A Beach Vacation

    September and October offer some of the most spectacular beach weather that Southern California sees all year -- daily temperatures linger in the mid-to-high 70s, and the balmy autumn breeze ensures you never get too overheated while unwinding in the sand. You will also be visiting at the peak of San Diego's best surf season. In late summer and early fall, large swells combine with warm Santa Ana winds to generate the most coveted surfing conditions in the region.

    No Expiration on the La Jolla Sunshine!

    There's never really an "off season" for the unlimited sun and sparkling surf native to La Jolla, however in the fall months you can take advantage of smaller crowds. This means you'll enjoy a more private, tranquil beach experience at La Jolla Shores with your pick of complimentary beach chairs, umbrellas, and towels set up by our friendly staff to take in the incredible panoramic Pacific views on our beach.
    Plus, visiting La Jolla Shores in the Fall also means that you'll enjoy lower rates! Saving money has never felt better than when it's coupled with de-stressing in one of our 128 peaceful rooms, all with direct beach access and scenic coastal views.

    After you've had your fill (temporary, of course!) of reclining on the sand, we've got you covered with a wide range of exciting activities to keep you engaged with La Jolla's natural beauty.

    Our Beach Is Your Playground

    Fall at La Jolla Shores means endless family activities with lighter crowds, making our beautiful beach your idyllic personal playground.
    Spend the afternoon surfing and kayaking on the Pacific waves or set out for a day of scuba diving the 600-acre underwater eco reserve that sits just a few yards off our beach. During low tide, venture down to the captivating tide pools just south of The Marine Room restaurant. These incredible natural repositories change daily with the tides, as sea life moves from one habitat to the next. Late summer and early Fall are particularly good times to explore the tidepools, as lower tides fall during daylight throughout the season.

  • Snorkel With The Marine Life:

    Why settle for peering at fish and rays through aquarium glass when you can swim among them? You may even catch a leopard shark sighting. Each year, thousands of leopard sharks migrate to the warmer waters of La Jolla Shores to mate and hatch their young, from early June through the end of September or October. These gorgeous -- and harmless -- fish are a breathtaking sight, and snorkeling (or kayaking) alongside them makes for an unforgettable family memory.
