Shell Beach - 1 Min
San Diego, CA 92037
Shells, seals, sea lions, tide pools, and beautiful scenery – you’ll find it all here at Shell Beach, located across the street from Pantai Inn. Since this California beach is flanked by sandstone bluffs, you’ll have the most luck finding seashell treasures on the beach during low tide. For a scenic walk, follow the pathway along the bluff which heads north up to Coast Walk Trail. Seal Rock Reserve, a large offshore rock, is where you’ll discover many seals and sea lions as they rest and lie in the sun. Finally, a tide pool at the south end of Ellen Browning Scripps Park offers a great viewing spot for an array of colorful sea stars and anemones. Visit during low tide, or better yet minus tide, for the best sightings!
