Torrey Pines Glider port, photo by Oleg Bozhenko aka MrGALL. The Torrey Pines Gliderport (FAA LID: CA84) is a city-owned private-use glider airport. The Torrey Pines Gliderport is located on the scenic cliffs above Black's Beach, next to the Salk Institute for Biological Studies. From the gliderport you can see spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean and La Jolla, San Diego, California. Nearby is the Torrey Pines Municipal Golf Course, Torrey Pines State Beach, Torrey Pines State Reserve, Scripps Institution of Oceanography and the University of California, San Diego. The popular trail to Black's Beach begins on the cliffs just south of the gliderport.
