Nothing epitomizes fun in the sun like La Jolla. Native Americans called the site La Hoya, meaning "the cave," referring to the grottoes that dot the shoreline. The Spaniards changed it to La Jolla, "the jewel," and what a jewel it is. The tide pools are an endless source of fascination for many as people looks for creatures in the rocks and along the shore.
