    Paragliding looks like a lot of fun- if you want to experience it for yourself, book a tandem glide
    I was going to do the tandem paraglide, but will have to do it on another trip as I was running out of time. We did go to the Gliderport and watched others do it. It looks like a lot of fun. You are right next to Black Beach (nude beach) and the slot canyon. So, you can do other things if you want when you go there.

    Yes.
    They open early but flights don’t start until the wind picks up. Flights are first come first serve but they may hold off on people over 150lbs until they are confident in winds. I showed up to be first in line but had to weight 2 hours on wind. Great hiking to beach. Great people watching. The sandwich shop is there to help with munchies and a great view.

    Make this your first stop when visiting San Diego!
    This should be the #1 thing to do while visiting San Diego! Most travelers make La Jolla & it's beaches, aquarium and maybe even famous Torrey Pines golf course a must do while in town. Book a tandem flight and get the best views of La Jolla, Torrey and the Pacific Ocean. Do you want to fly over the beach, pier, or maybe fly next to Alicia Keys mansion. As a local this is the best of the best!!

    Gliding over Torrey Pines
    My sister and I went Paragliding out of Torrey Pines Gliderport. It was amazing. I was in tamdem with JC, my glider expert, and he was wonderful. He explained to me how the gliding worked, pointed out dolphins in the ocean, and safely glided me around the cliffs of Torrey Pines. I loved it.

    Nice place to stop
    Stopped on Saturday morning, but no paraglides were flying. But it’s a great place for scenic views of cliffs and ocean. There is on-site parking and a small quick service window for food. We spent an hour or so walking around and taking it all in.

DO NOT GO HERE AND WASTE YOUR MONEY. I ordered a salad and never got it . They claimed that “somebody took it “ and they never gave me food or refunded me money . I try to go hang gliding and they have me fill out a long form just to tell me that I couldn’t . Thank god I didn’t because if they can’t even serve food right why trust them with your life hang gliding ? Do not come here this place is absolutely terrible and I would not trust them with my life . THERES A REASON WHY THEY MAKE YOU FILL OUT A LOT OF FORMS .

The pilot was experienced and I felt very comfortable. It was a beautiful day, it was peaceful and beautiful. The take-off and landing were so smooth, and I appreciated the entire process. The views were breathtaking.

Great place to take a break. The type of place that you bring folks from out of town to have an affordable bite to eat and to catch crazy guys jumping off of a rocky cliff for entertainment
