“Are these guys nuts...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2013

We sat for over an hour and watched people jump off the cliff. Literally. Of course they had either parasails or hang gliders. Theothr neat thing was the folks flying radio controlled model gliders.

“Easy parking during the week and easy to find!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2013

I use this for parking during my hike/run on the beach. Great beach for running and the hike down and back up is a great warm up/cool down.

Of note: Black's beach is down below and is known not just for solid sand for running but also as a naked beach. Not a great beach to take the kids on and not a good hike for someone that isn't in good physical condition since the hike is somewhat difficult.

“Fun to Watch (and Marvel)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2013

A trip to the Torrey Pines gliderport is worth your time. You can take in an absolutely beautiful view of the Pacific coast and watch (and marvel) at the gliders as they begin their journey by running off the cliff. Pretty amazing (and enjoyable).

“You don't have to glide to enjoy the Gliderport!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2013

It's a nice place to enjoy the spectacular ocean views and watch the gliders. There is a small snack stand on-site and a few picnic tables.

“Cool...I guess”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2013

If you are going to glide, then this would be awesome. However if you want to just go check it out...you're not missing much. Most of the time you're watching people stand around waiting for the wind to lift them off. When it happens, it's cool, but waiting is boring. Plus, there's really not much to do otherwise.
