We can spend hours at Torrey Pines. It is unbelievable place where you can walk the trails and stare at the water. Please drive up and that walk the trails. It is worth every pennies

We didn't see anyone fly the afternoon we were there, but the views were spectacular (climb up on the little tower just south of the gliderport) and we saw surfers and a photoshoot on the beach below. See separate review of the Cliffhanger Cafe located at the Gliderport.

Torrey Pines Glidport is a wonderful spot to spend a day or a few hours with kids and family. The view is excellent, and the gliding activities are enjoyable for all ages. Try the cafe for a toasted sandwich or simple coffee. The french toasted chicken sandwich is yummy!!

Whether you are hand gliding yourself, watching others hand glide or just taking in the view this is an often overlooked spot. If you haven’t ever hand glided before and want to I highly encourage you booking a tandem reservation here. These people are professionals, super knowledgeable and very nice. I’ve done it three times. You fly/glide over the Pacific Ocean, the beautiful beaches and on occasions I’ve flown over some of the waterfront mansions you would otherwise never be able to see from the road. It truly is a must do if you are into this kind of thing. If not, watching people take off and land is amazing also. There is a little snack bar/restaurant where you can get food. I would bring some sunglasses and maybe a light jacket, the wind comes up through there, and spend a few hours there for sure!

This is a sport I do better watching... I am sure there is tons of thrills, but it is fun to lay back and watch. The views of the ocean makes it very nice...
