Stopped into this amazing place to take a closer look at these gliders that you see from afar when you are in the La Jolla, Torrey Pines area. It is a thrill to just watch these talented people jump off the cliff and then soar and climb like a eagle. Check it out when you are in the area.

We stopped by on a Saturday morning and it was hopping! It was SO neat to see! It is amazing to watch them take off and land, we stayed a couple of hours and would have loved to stay longer!

Wow! A hidden gem. We spent a couple of hours just watching the pilots glide around. You can also take a tandem trip with a pro, but it is expensive. Very relaxing. The highlight was an elderly man checking an item off his bucket list...very cool to watch him.

We visited this attraction on a windy Saturday afternoon. There were many hang gliders and para sailers in the air, with people landing and taking off every few minutes. There is also an aria for radio controlled sail planes, for me this was a highlight as the skill of some of these pilots and the size of the models was very impressive.

There is food and bathrooms available as well as ample free parking. This site is free to visit.

The view from the gliderport is great and watching the gliders take off and glide around is a lot of fun. If I had more time during my visit I would have tried it. If you are in the area this is a great place to check out a awesome view and see something you don't everyday.
