Kinda spendy but worth every penny. Safe and friendly staff and never a dull moment. Also, good eats at a shack that has a patio with views of the ocean and glider activities.

Paid just under $200 to have an amazing experience I will never forget. Really cool to just sit and watch these people walk of a cliff and sail for hours. Super cool

So neat to go and watch people take off and land. Beautiful beautiful area and such a cool thing to experience! Our son loved watching them.

We have been here twice for lunch. The first time a grill was set up and we were able to order hamburgers, etc. The second time just the deli sandwiches were available. Both times we enjoyed watching the gliders and view!

This was a nice stop on the way to Torrey Pines State Park. Be sure to take pictures of the gliders over the cliffs!

Great place to spend an afternoon ! What a great time to see the professionals and others hang glide. Bring the sunglasses, get a sandwich at the restaurant right there and make a day of this. Probably my favorite thing to do in San Diego...More

This is a fun place even if you don't want to join in the fun. You can sit on the deck and have a bite to eat or just hang out and watch the paragliders. It's windy so I would recommend bringing a light jacket....More

i intend to learn paragliding, but I don't like the school in Maracopa,Az.,so I'd be commuting from mesa Az. to Torrey for the weekends in my truck and trailer,which is my home on the road.Can I park a single axle 12' trailer and truck on or nearby overnights very occasionally and temporarily?I really can't see it happening if I must pay for hotels, thanks!

I would agree with Rich G.. we had no problems staying in the parking area during our visit. I would say there were 15 camper/motorhomes there the night we stayed
