The San Clemente pier dates from 1928. Vicious storms damaged it in 1938 and 1983, forcing it to be rebuilt. The pier is nearly 1,300 feet long, about 550 feet shorter than the county's most picturesque pier north at Huntington Beach. Both are great places...More

Either the restaurant or the more informal bar across the walkway are good. The bar offers a very economical early bird dinner and drinks on weekdays.

Not sure I'd want to drive a car out onto the thing, plenty of nails sticking up and a little rickety - but we had a nice stroll along the Pier before dinner at the Sea Food restaurant at the beach end of the pier.

Entry to pier has several restaurants. Otherwise pier goes out into Pacific. Have interesting points of interest signs. No visible porpoises, etc to see this date.

watched the sun set over the ocean, it was beautiful. Nice trail on the beach to walk along and fire pits in the sand for an evening of festivities.

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.
