This is what is best about our small town. The waves crash up against the pylons as the sun sets behind Catalina and the seagulls whisper goodnight. It makes every evening a storybook ending. Parking is easy and close too.

Walking along the pier, you share the beautiful views with a variety of people. From young kids to old fisherman, it’s a delightful passage over the ocean.

Nothing prettier than a walk out on the pier. The coast line always looks so beautiful when you look towards shore.

We love walking on the beach every day, seeing the friendly people of San Clemente here. Frequently close the day with beautiful sunsets there. Have seen whales, dolphins, sea lions, octopus, shark, stingray, pelicans, on & on!

Stroll the pier for a view of San Clemente from the water. Check out the surfers, enjoy the ocean breezes. Have a meal or just a drink at one of the two pier restaurants. A perfect break from land and our hurried agendas.

The San Clemente Pier is one of the longer piers. There are two restaurants at the entrance and a snack bar near the end. Snack bar is under new ownership and they’re doing a really nice job. Watch out for the fishermen lines. Perfect place...More

We would not have noticed this problem if we had not had someone in our party who was using a walker. Although we managed to get one of the 2 handicap spaces we saw at the pier, getting onto the pier was another story. Yes,...More

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 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.
