Walk the pier for sunset and surfer viewing. Nice area with restaurants around and running path along the train tracks and beach. Check out all the places across the street for coffee, ice cream, pizza, etc.

Surfed by the pier which was good surf. It's more quiet than other piers (i.e. Huntington) parking is easy. Nice trail along the water.

Piers are great places to people watch. Fun chatting with the fisherman and watching the surfers. The Fisherman's Restaurant and Bar is on the pier as is The Oyster Bar.

We live in San Clemente and love sunset walks on the pier. Fisherman's restaurant right on the pier is another plus, you can choose to go to the bar side with limited menu, or the restaurant side with full menu, for a lovely lunch or dinner.

Such a pleasure to walk out into the ocean, anytime of day. Lots of surfers and paddleboarders in the waves, fishing along the rails, great breakfasts outdoors as the breakers crash below.

The pier is great for a nice walk, get your photo taken, lots of picturesque places. And if you get hungry, Oyster bar has great views and drinks. Highly recommend.

As a Californian for 20+ years, this was always one of the most spectacular beaches to visit. The views and are unsurpassed and it doesn't have the Laguna/Newport stigma.

San Clemente is a beautiful little town and the pier is the perfect place for a stroll, to grab a drink and watch the sunset.
