The San Clemente pier is great for a casual stroll or sight seeing. Two Fisherman Restaurants at the entrance to the pier make it a great place for happy hour or breakfast, lunch or dinner 7 days a week.

I was blessed to live in the beautiful town of San Clemente. Walking on the pier recalls beautiful memories of sun kissed days. Nothing beats enjoying the California sunshine and taking in the views and sounds of the ocean while walking on the pier.

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.
