Children's Pool

From Openwaterpedia

The Children's Pool is a small beach in San Diego, California partially protected by a seawall. The original intention was to create a fully protected swimming area, but in recent years sand has filled in much of the area inside the wall.

This is a popular beach for scuba divers because of the reefs just offshore. These same reefs can create very strong currents and other hazards, particularly in high surf conditions. This has also become a popular viewing area for harbor seals. Seals and occasionally seal lions haul out on the beach to rest year-round. This is a very picturesque beach with a panoramic view. Several small beaches are nearby including Wipeout Beach to the south and Shell Beach to the north. Children's Pool is one of nine beaches that has a permanent lifeguard station patrolled by San Diego Lifeguards.
