I did not eat at the restaurants but I definitely will next time I visit with those beautiful views. Lots of good food and bathrooms. People watching is a must.

I visited the San Clemente Pier last summer and there were so many small rocks all over the beach that it made it uncomfortable to walk on or lay down in the sand!! Anyone else have this same problem?

We had so much fun visiting during the July 4th time frame. The pier is very clean. We took family pictures on the pier. There is one restaurant. Fun place for sure. Fireworks good!

A beautiful wooden pier that stretches 1/4 mile into the Pacific Ocean. Watch Fishermen try their luck or watch the surfers catch some waves while keeping a look out for dolphins. Grab a bite to eat at the Fishermans which offer a fantastic happy hour...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.
