Now that I am at home, I'm going to be sulking, wishing that we had gone to the Pier a second time while we were visiting Orange County for the weekend. I just loved it. We had a desert and drinks at the Fisherman's Restaurant...More

We sat on a bench above the Pier at sunset and it was amazing. Great location to take pictures, you can literally watch the sun set into the ocean!

Nice & clean beach but very crowded. Fantastic for older kids but I recommend Mother's Beach or something more quiet for little ones. He loved the ocean though and happy we have the memory.

Beautiful views -- depending on the day and time of day. The usual parade of humanity. All fine -- unless you make the mistake of touching the railing. IF you can pry your hand off, you'll think, "Why I am such a dope?" Still worth...More

I have been up and down California's coast line. I have visited many piers and coast line communities. I actually moved down here because of this beautiful well kept friendly pier.

Awesome views of the surfers from the pier. Great place to bring out of towners. They have a great restaurant and a great bar on the pier. Awesome anytime of year!

The pier in San Clemente is a must see. You can look straight up the coast, watch for dolphins and catch a sea breeze. There are two restaurants that sit at the base of the pier, and the food is great. One of my favorite...More

The pier is nice for a quick walk out over the water, but otherwise, it's really only for fishing. Because of that, it's also not very clean. Lots of fish cleaning stations with bloody remnants all over them. It's nice we still have a historic...More

All the best of San Clemente beach seems to be concentrated at this Pier. There is a popular and excellent restaurant right at the entrance. Good views of the surfers as you head down the length. Fishermen scattered all along the way and concentrated at...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.
