Great for Spectators & Beautiful Views

We don't actually participate in this sport, but it was very cool to watch. Very nice scenic views. A nice little place to eat there too.

There weren't any gliders or hang gliders the day we visited but enjoyed the ocean and cliff views and could definitely see the potential thrill of jumping off a cliff with a glider attached! Terrain is reasonably rugged, parking lot is dirt and a little tricky. Overall, a nice view and glad we stopped by while in the area.

A visit to Torrey Pines Gliderport is simply beautiful. Watching the paragliders take off and land gracefully just feet away is just really so captivating. The wind was strong but somehow gentle, and the pilots and their kites were so elegant in the efficiency and smoothness of their take offs and landings, it was really just enchanting. I could have...

At Glider Point You Can Leave Your Worries On The Ground And Soar Over The Beach Below. If You Aren't Feeling Like A Daredevil, That's Alright, You Can Escape The Hussle And Bussle Of The City With Someone Special On The Hillside Watching Other Glide Above You.

The gliderport is a fun place to go watch hang gliding, but the views of La Jolla are truly the reason to go.

Nice stop to watch Gliders. Great views and you can pay to glide with an instructor. It is kinda of pricey though, I think it was close to $200.

If you are into adventure, this is great fun. You glide over the cliffs along the coast. The views from the cliff and from the ride itself are well worth it. If you don't want to try gliding, the beaches here are still amazing!

Something most people don't get a chance to see close up. Got to be very brave or nuts to jump off a cliff. Fun place for family. Some eats and drinks. Good fun at low cost.

On a nice, windy day, it was a blast just to sit and watch for an hour or so. If our teenagers had been with us, I'm sure they would have wanted to take a tandem ride. We old folks didn't, but we checked the price: $125 for 20-25 minutes. Pretty good, actually, if you compare it to various ziplining... More

It is a beautiful spot to observe the gliders take off and land. The is a snack bar there but no alcoholic beverages. You can go on a tantrum ride for a price. I'm did not try this. Great place for a sunset view.
