Visitor questions:

Question: Have you gone naked here? If so, how was it?
Asked by Jordan 2 months ago
Answer: La Jolla Shores Beach is always crowded, so going naked here is for the bravest nudists only! If you're brave enough, remember that the nude section is located north of the pier while all other parts of the beach are meant for sunbathing in swimsuits.
