This place is beautiful. Great views. Lovely sunsets. Good date stop. BUT, it's not a great place for little kids. The cliffs are very steep and dangerous.

Depending on the wind, there can be many non-powered aircraft taking off over the cliffs here. Many birds can be seen here, especially at dusk. There's a snack bar and portable toilets.

After the Torrey Pines golf course I stopped in at the Torrey Pines Gliderport just behind the golf course. This place was gorgeous and right on the edge of the cliffs. I took a lot of pictures and walked to the edge of the cliffs….....More

Hanggliding with a pro, overlooking ocean pacific and experience flying. Close to La Jolla and easy to find, rather expensive activity.

I'm a local. I, as a matter of course, start my tours at the Gliderport. The view is impactful. There is a cafe for lunch or snacks. One could "hang" there for more than an hour. The breeze is right off the ocean. It is...More

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...More

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
