On a busy and windy afternoon between appointments, I went to my favorite beach in San Diego to check out the intense waves crashing on the shore. Windansea Beach in La Jolla is a "locals" beach where many visitors and residents enjoy breathtaking sunsets. Experienced surfers take advantage of the immense waves year around. Find sitting benches on top of the cliffs and a white wooden staircase leading to the sandy beach. This peaceful beach is reminiscent of Hawaii with it's blue water and soft sand, but please keep in mind there are no restrooms and the parking is extremely limited. It's easy to get lost in this mesmerizing place with the wind, powerful waves, rock formations, small cliffs, and beautiful white sand. Head a little further north to the children's pool and beautiful La Jolla Cove, which happens to be a protected marine sanctuary.
