About Wipeout Beach in La Jolla, California

Wipeout Beach is a sandy beach south of Children’s Pool Beach along Coast Boulevard in La Jolla. In the winter the sand gets ripped away by storms leaving a rugged bluff that must be scrambled down from to reach the lower sand level. At low tide there is more sand to enjoy and tide pools and caves in the rocks get exposed. Swimming here can be dangerous because of rip currents so be careful. There are free parking spots along Coast Blvd and at Childrens Pool but they fill up fast. It’s fun to walk south from here along the bluff top to Whispering Sands Beach. This entire stretch of the La Jolla shoreline is tops for watching and photographing sunsets.
