So much fun to walk this pier, watch the fishermen, surfers and waves. It’s breezy so bring a jacket, restrooms available and easy for wheelchairs/strollers. A must see free activity for all ages.

Very nice and safe area to walk out on the pier and enjoy the view. You can view the sunset over the island on a clear day.

This is one of the easiest nice piers in Southern California. Easy parking nice variety of shops around the pier and great bar on the pier. Stay and watch the suffers, walk the beach and enjoy the sunset. This is a real peace of tranquility.

Really nice pier that is not dog friendly. Great views of coastline and very windy. Lots of fisherman was almost hit twice on cast of angler not paying attention.

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 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.
