La Jolla Coast Walk is a beautiful coastline trail, but is a bit of a heavily trafficked tourist trail. The hike can be started and ended at 3 separate locations. The trail is easily accessible with a small parking lot and tons of restaurants nearby. 

The trail begins near another popular tourist attraction, the Cave Store. From the trail you can sea kayakers, sea lions and tons of flowers. The trail is rimmed with fences and handrails as well as benches. This is a great trail for scenic views and photography. 

Note: Dogs are not permitted on the beach during peak hours. These hours vary from season to season, but more information can be found on SanDiego.gov.
