The newly renovated historic Grande Colonial Hotel enjoys a king location, being just steps away from miles of beaches and high-end dining, shopping and entertaining. Those travelers who find a setting of classic Southern California laid back luxury to their liking might prefer to stay at Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa with convenient access to La Jolla, Torrey Pines, Del Mar and San Diego attractions.

La Jolla Beachfront

Rugged and invigorating, La Jolla coast offers a plethora of opportunities for family outing. The San Diego-La Jolla Underwater Park which is a protected zone with a variety of marine life, kelp forests as well as interesting reefs and canyons lure scuba divers and snorkelers. Surfing is a primary reason for most of the visitors with the best place to surf and see surfers at Windansea Beach.

The Kellogg City Park features beach playgrounds which are especially good for families. Here the waves are gentle enough for beginner surfers, and kayakers may launch from the shore without any problem. Some of the best beaches of the county are North of La Jolla Shores in Torrey Pines City Park, covering the coastline from the Salt Institute up to the Torrey Pine State Reserve.

With good displays on local fauna and flora, the Torrey Pine State Reserve preserves the last mainland stands of the Torrey pine, a species adapted to scarce rainfall and sandy, stony soils. Steep sandstone gullies have eroded intricately textured surfaces and the scenic views over the ocean are superb here, especially at sunsets. With several walking trails winding through the reserve and down to the beach, it is a wonderful hiking spot.

La Jolla is the best place in San Diego to go for high-class shopping. Galleries sell paintings, sculptures and decorative items while small boutiques fill in the spaces between Banana Republic, Armani Exchange and Saks Fifth Avenue. Distant views of the Pacific are glimpsed from the windows and from between the buildings of the downtown La Jolla, with the main thoroughfares known for the “3Rs” – restaurants, rugs and real estate.
