Awesome views of La Jolla Shores. Wonderful Nostalgic feeling. Easy to find. Birch Aquarium and Beach within walking distance. Relaxing place to hang out.

From Torrey Pines Rd, turn left onto La Jolla Shores Drive. After about 1/4 of a mile down start to look for parking preferably near UCSD Coastal Apartments. Once parked walk along the UCSD apartments until you see Discovery way. Make a left at Discovery where you will then cross the street. You will see 3 metal poles. Once you pass those if you look to the right you will see the tree swings overlooking La Jolla.

There are 3 swings and are all very sturdy! There's nothing better than feeling like you're traveling back into time to your childhood. Especially with an outrageously gorgeous view in front of you along with the cool ocean breeze.

For more nostalgia if you walk just to the left of the swings you will come across a treehouse also overlooking La Jolla shores! This treehouse is extremely sturdy and offers such a calming breeze.

These two spots will bring nothing but smiles, laughter, and nostalgia. And killer views of La Jolla Shores!!

*Please note that the original swings have been taken down. See reviews for updates on swing status at this location.

Great View, No Swing!!

We hiked the long way around and found no swings! Somebody had cut them down and the strap hung from the tree still. Sad!

La Jolla Swings to go!

Last time I went there was only 1 swing left. So I bought my kids a swing from www.treeswingstore.com and we hung it in a big tree out back. AND I got another one to go hang on the hill. There used to be 6 or 7 swings hanging there a few years ago. I'll do my part to help out.
