Torrey Pines Beaches

Outside of La Jolla area, is there anywhere else in the world one might find a Torrey Pine tree?

Only one other grove of Torrey Pines has ever been documented:  on Santa Rosa Island, off the California coast near Santa Barbara.  How they first appeared on the island remains unknown…

Torrey Pines could be the greatest jewel of La Jolla’s elite stretch of coastline.  Rare specimens of the Torrey Pine tree, delicate sandstone bluffs that range from copper and gold to bronze in the rays of the setting sun…  Torrey Pines State Reserve provides visitors a glimpse at a land that time has left untouched.
