Couldn't help but notice how dirty the pier was! Restrooms were unclean and flies all over! At the end of pier were fishermen so you had to be careful not to get close to them when they were throwing out their line!

A trip out to sea without getting sea sick is a must for anyone. I always recommend walking the length of a pier when at a seaside resort. The only thing missing on this one is a carousel.

Walk on out, take in the view watching the surfers and fishermen, grab a drink at the Fisherman's restaurant.

The pier was fine, not super exciting. Nice views from the end of the pier. The beach was nice, clean. Bathrooms were not great, but at least they were bathrooms.

The San Clemente Pier is a jewel. It remains a free pier so no having to pay just to walk out to the end. Fun to hang out and watch the fishermen / fisherwomen bring in their catch. Fisherman's restaurant and oyster bar are also...More

Just a fishing pier no shops or restaurant at the tip. There is a good seafood restaurant at the land portion.

I have to think really near. We had to cross the tracks in order to get on the pier and restaurant. We did not pay attention to the stop in that vicinity. Check the metro link on line for stops.

I noticed someone stated they didn't want to leave their dog in their car. Are dogs not allowed on the pier?

I didn't notice any on the pier but there is a San Clemente SURFBOARD RENTALS - 949-369-7873. Perhaps you can call them and see if their location is good for you.
