  • this has plenty of parking and a fun activity to watch launching of paragliding. great place to watch sunset and eat dinner in car.  more »
  • We did not do the gliding ourselves, but enjoyed watching those who did. And, seeing them soar over the beautiful ocean was a treat.  more »
  • I personally haven't hang glided yet but my friend has and it's so cool. The weather there during the summer is nice, with almost a constant breeze keeping you cool. Their snack shop is a sweet edition too just in case you're hungry. Last time I ate there, their food was really good. Given that you'll likely be there for at least an hour (probably more) it's definitely nice.
  • If you haven't visited this place you have too. It's so nice the view from the gliders take off is gorgeous. The gliders are so entertaining, having you on the edge watching them glide off the cliffs. Oh yes and if your hungry they have a nice quaint place to serve you coffee, hot chocolate, snacks and food. Good place to relax and watch others jump off the cliffs 😁
