You can see the gliders from La Jolla, easy drive to the glider port. Have a picnic, walk down the cliffs to the beach. Or just hang out and view Nice Sunday afternoon...

“A Fun Afternoon”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013

We often drop by the Gliderport for a fun afternoon with friends.There's a great ocean breeze most of the time for lift off and a cool spot to enjoy a snack and drink.(There's a small snack shack there). It's so relaxing to watch the gliders, and birds enjoying the wind currents over the cliffs.Do not, however, wash your car before stopping there. The parking lot is unpaved and dust really flies.!The entrance there is free, so you can come and go as you please!

“Great sunset view!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

Easy to get too to enjoy a cliff top view of the Pacific Ocean. Great place to pull in and relax. Excellent photographic sunset spot. Bring a blanket to sit on the rock top cliff and enjoy a beautiful spot.

“A great attraction”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013

We just loved seeing the paragliders take off the cliffs and floating in the air. We even saw a dog and his master on the glider. He was loving it more than his owner!

“WoW!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2013

This was fun to watch on a couple different levels; the people were very laid back ( the instructor was giving instruction via speaker while lying in a hammock) and the color and drama of the cliff made it very different to watch.
