Year-round sunshine? Check. Miles of sandy coastline? Check. An oceanic playground for boarders, boaters and swimmers? Check. Perched on the southernmost tip of California, the only challenge San Diego poses to visitors, is finding the top spots to splash around it. The best place for water-lovers of all ages to begin the day is about 15 minutes north of downtown San Diego at La Jolla Shores.

With a full day of aquatic activities stretching before you, a healthy breakfast is in order. The Cottage in La Jolla offers outdoor seating, good coffee and breakfast that’s as easy as it is tasty.
