Point AKA Goldfish Point - named for the abundance of gold-hued
garibaldi fish - is the eastern most of La Jollas several
coves and is well protected from westerly Pacific swells by
a mini peninsula (the point) jutting northward into the sea.
The lack of wave bashing promotes luxuriant kelp growth as well
as safe habitat for a kaleidoscope of California reef creatures.
Another reason marine life is so plentiful is that Goldfish
Point is part of the La Jolla Underwater Park which prohibits
the hunting or collecting of marine organisms.
