The community of La Jolla Shores is located in the northern part of La Jolla above the mile long crescent of beach. Of note in the area are the Scripps Institution of Oceanography with its graceful pier and the La Jolla Beach and Tennis Club with its par three pitch and putt golf course and many tennis courts. The housing in this neighborhood includes apartments, condominiums, beach cottages, oceanfront homes, and sprawling homes on half acre sites in the Upper Shores just across La Jolla Shores Drive. La Jolla Shores Drive rises to the north, towards UCSD, it passes the beautiful, gated community of Montoro.
