Concierge.com's insider take:
Situated on a cliff high above Black's Beach, the Gliderport is a mecca for hang gliding and paragliding. Though it's entertaining to watch the action as the experts take off from the cliffs and land, it's infinitely cooler to try it yourself. Beginners can start with a 20- to 30-minute tandem flight with an instructor.
