The Best Instagram Photo Ops in La Jolla in February 2024

Looking for some great images to add to your social media repertoire? La Jolla, California has many beautiful beaches and restaurants that offer great Instagram pics.

Here our my favorite spots for snapping La Jolla Instagram photos.

La Jolla Cove

How many places can you get this personal with sea lions? Snap a sea lion selfie. (Just make sure to give them enough distance! They like their personal space, too.)

La Jolla Shores

The sunsets and endless activities at La Jolla Shores make this beach the perfect arena for summer vibing photography.


The Catania pizzas are not only delicious, all the Catania food and cocktails are very Instagram worthy.

Marine Street & Whispering Sands Beach

Simply picturesque.

The Shores Restaurant

Order a cocktail at the restaurant on the 1st floor of La Jolla Shores Hotel, The Shores Restaurant. Get ready to snap because La Jolla Shores martinis look real good on Instagram.

Scripps Pier

This iconic pier on the border of La Jolla Shores Beach & Scripps Beach is one of the most photographed landmarks in La Jolla for good reason.

The Gliderport

Famous for launching non-powered flight for over 100 years, take a photo that’s a part of history here at the Torrey Pines Gliderport.
