It is amazing to see the gliders taking off and landing. The food is quite basic, but honest. You really come here for the view. No other places like that.

Although you can go for a ride, I did not. I did enjoy the spectacular views and enjoyed watching the hang gliders and such float about in their aerial ballet. Just beautiful I was there on a Saturday afternoon. Parking is challenging but not impossible....More

You can park, have a snack, and sit and watch as all types of gliders take off and land - and even get ride if you wish. Nice spot on the cliffs above the ocean.

A close up view of the adventurous hang gliders, occasionally remote control gliders, a sometimes nude beach (far) below, and the famous Salk Institute.

Went here to watch the gliders of all types. Got more than I asked for. Great Live band playing. Tesla Autos were there. Drinks, sun, constant breeze, view &/or hike down to Blacks' Beach. Next time I go tandem.

very nice view and it's really fun watching the gliders come and go. Its very relaxing, i could spend hours their hanging out in their restaurant and listening to this guy serenading.. recommend this place, its not something you can see in many places.

Our family likes to be active and to see beautiful views so this is perfect. There are so many trails to take to fit different activity levels and the views are out of this world.

We went just to look vs. actually doing the gliding. No doubt this is a full setup for gliders to do their thing. Also appears they have the full lessons & tandem experience available for the adventurous. Very rustic setup, but they do have food...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
