La Jolla in Spanish means "The Jewel" and this quite rightly describes this elegant, upscale coastal resort. Only short 15 minute drive from downtown San Diego and set amid beautiful cliffs and pretty coves.
It boasts wonderful beaches, cultural activities and fine restaurants. Stroll through it's quaint streets lined with gourmet chocolatiers, designer clothes shops and top name jewellers.
La Jolla is an exquisite combination of a southern European resort atmosphere and Southern California fun. While La Jolla is known to be one of the most affluent communities in the United States, it has a down to earth feel due to the beautiful natural scenery and the friendliness of its residents.
