Most Popular Area Attractions

La Jolla Cave Store

While some know it as the Sunny Jim's Sea Cave, the La Jolla Cave Store is a charming and unique attraction. Visitors to the La Jolla Cave Store can access the "world-famous" Sunny Jim Cave by land. The man-made tunnel from the store to the cave was carved out with a pick and shovel over two years.

Sunny Jim Cave remains the only known land access sea cave, along the California coast. Rent snorkel gear from the store to find one of the six ocean-carved entrances. The cave is a must-see attraction for visitors in La Jolla. Bring your beach towel and gear for a relaxing day at La Jolla Cove, one of the most beautiful beaches in the San Diego area.
