Torrey Pines Glider Port Park to Black's Beach

Torrey Pines Glider Port Park to Black's Beach Professional Review and Guide

"Torrey Pines Glider Port Park lies within Torrey Pines City Park on 300-foot oceanfront sandstone bluffs, located between Del Mar and La Jolla at the south end of Torrey Pines State Reserve. The park towers above Torrey Pines City Beach, known locally as Black’s Beach, a well-known clothing-optional beach. The barren bluffs overlook Scripps Pier and the scalloped coastline. The strong winds that strike the oceanfront bluffs create updrafts, making it an ideal and popular hang gliding and paragliding area. A steep, half-mile-long path leads down the weather-worn cliffs to Black’s Beach."
