This is a one stop shop. You can rent kayaks or bikes. It is a stone's throw from La Jolla Beach and has a great store where you can buy water gear. and clothes.
But it isn't IN La Jolla. It's in La Jolla Beach. In order to get to La Jolla, you will have to ride up a very long and steep hill with traffic whizzing by constantly which is a bit tiresome and unnerving.
And they will give you a bike map which looks like you are riding on a bike trail. NO! You will be on city and neighborhood streets the whole way. Most are fine for riding, with minimal traffic. and you will ride by an endless cavalcade of stunningly beautiful houses. And there are side streets to parks and overlooks above the Pacific Ocean. But on a mountain bike the hills are killer.
I recommend renting an electric bike in La Jolla.
But La Jolla Beach is very cool. and the kayak tour offered by Bike & Kayak rentals is a great way to get out on the water and visit the caves where the sea lion lounge. It's easy and fun paddling as long as the wind isn't blowing and the water isn't rough. The ocean can be a bit scary id it's rough, so check the conditions before renting or taking a tour.
The people who run the shop are young and friendly. The cost for renting a bike or kayak is reasonable.
And after your ride, head back down to the beach and check out the scene. Walk along the Boardwalk and take in the sights.
This is definitely the best rental place in La Jolla Beach.
