Really cool spot. Worth a stop for sure. If you have the guts try the Paraglide. We didn’t but sure looked fun. Had a great time watching them fly. Fun stop on the way up the coast.

Was in a friends wedding at this location and the views were beautiful, but tons of people Around and gliders in and out which was disruptive to the ceremony. Can’t beat the views though.

We spent a couple hours just hanging out watching the paragliders cruising around the cliffs. This spot is both exciting & relaxing at the same time. Great place to picnic or grab lunch.

Great view here and the hike down to the black's beach is pretty good. Its a clothing optional beach so not much to do there (no shops / eatries / sports etc). Cost of parasailing is $175 to $200. Gliding is more, and even more...More

Some might, I sure didn't! It was very quiet and peaceful! That said, if you have any fear of heights I'd opt out. Pacific Ocean is 350 feet from where you take off and you're sail much, much higher than that!
