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!!

Only one left!
I was only able to find the one swing, but I did find a ladder to climb up a tree and two huts made out of branches that were very interesting. There seemed to be a lot of construction going on around the area, so maybe that's why the swings were cut down :(
There's actually only one swing right now and it does have a nice view of the ocean. It's a little difficult to find....and the swing sits right on a busy street so tranquility is limited but it's a bush city so I guess you can't expect to much.

The best time to go to Fonts point is right before the sun sets. It is located in the desert, so be sure to dress warmly and bring a blanket or two.
