Paragliding at Cayton Bay has lower cliffs that are steep but not sheer, grass and mud covered. The high cliffs are sheer and rocky, and take a more Northerly wind. Take offs are small from wild grass and it can be difficult to lay out a paraglider. The high cliff launch taking a Northerly is at 300ft.
The length of the site is approximately a mile and a quarter but this is only usable in a north-easterly.
