Tide Pools to Explore in San Diego

When is the last time you explored San Diego's tidepools? Here are a few options that are certain to please:

Swami's- located on the Pacific Coast Highway- you'll know you are in the right place when you see the gold domes of the Self-Realization Center.  Go down the  stairway to the beach below.  Often seen at these pools are brittle stars, octopi and sea hares.

Cardiff State Beach- Just north of Lomas Santa Fe Drive and off the Pacific Coast Hwy, there is a tide pool area by the bluffs at the south end of the parking lot.

La Jolla Cove-  Below the Museum of Contemporary Art you will find rocky shores and reefs with tide pools.

Sea Hare- but I don't recommend kissing them!
