Beneath the costal bluffs of southern La Jolla, Bird Rock lies just off the rocky shore. Approximately fifty yards out to sea, you will find the actual Bird Rock. Yep, a large slippery algae covered boulder that's covered in birds. It's also home to an incredibly shallow, expert only reef break. Be respectful and the old timers will let you drop in. It's a quick paddle out, just make sure to do it at high tide if you're on a short board. If you get there at low tide, well... the tide pools are excellent.
