If you are in La jolla you just have to visit Wind-And-Sea Beach which is located right a the water's edge of WestBorne avenue in downtown La Jolla where the surfers ride the most dangerous surf, around huge boulders, some partially submerged and some half visible in the crashing surf. Its a trip not to be missed.

Spent a week at our VRBO home rental at Windansea Beach. Had a wonderful time searching for shells, making sand castles, people watching, ship watching and enjoying the surfers.

Our ages ranged from 3-62 and we all were impressed by the accessibility, cleanliness and pure beauty.

I would’ve liked to see some public restrooms, but I’m sure the valuable real estate made it prohibitive to cover all the beaches.

I recommend Windansea Beach for families.

Beautiful beach. Loved the area for a perfect sunset. Sitting watching all the surfers. Can't wait to visit again.

Not too many rocks, not as crowded and plenty of street parking. Great spot if you want to get in the water.

I rented an Air BNB that was one block from this beach. Went every day and enjoyed watching the waves and surfers. Beach is long and narrow with a strip of sand, but enough to sun bathe. Also watched an incredible sunset from here.

This beach is small but mighty. You can enjoy the sun on the shore or try your hand at surfing this short but epic wave. Still standing and regularly maintained is a palm frond structure that has been used in the past for a lifeguard station.

I love Windansea Beach. It is one of those small gems that is not quite as popular as Ocean Beach or Pacific Beach. I go here for epic pictures, awesome surf and sightseeing. it gets crowded every once in a while just because it is a small area but you will not be disappointed! I am a professional photographer so I attached one of the shots I got there.

Some beaches in this area can get very busy. But this one is normally less crowded as it is a bit less know. The sea can get a bit rough so be careful

Really enjoyed spending the day at the beach. It was crowded but really nice. Great place to people watch and catch some rays.

This is a beautiful beach. Very different! On the day we were there it was pretty rough so I might not recommend swimming there but a great beach to just relax and listen to the waves or watch sunset.
