Paragliders at Torrey Pines Gliderport

If you're looking for some real excitement, head to La Jolla, California, where you can safely jump off a several hundred foot cliff and land on your feet at a nude beach below.

On the cliffs overlooking Black's Beach in San Diego, is the #1 ranked paragliding school in North America...Torrey Pines Gliderport. Set atop steep cliffs this location presents ideal wind conditions for flying. Visit there on weekends and you're sure to find many observers watching these enthusiasts take off and land again to a soundtrack of shrills and sighs as the thrill doesn't seem to wane with each new paraglider. This sport is open to the public and this facility offers training and tandem flying opportunities for first-timers. For observers, there is an observation deck and seats to enjoy watching the brave participants there.
