Nothing makes me more prouder than taking my visitors on a stroll out on San Clemente Pier. As you return back on the pier towards the City of San Clemente you experience the greatness of such a beautiful City as San Clemente! I am so proud of my city San Clemente and I know I am living in Paradise!

My wife and I love to walk the peer several times per week. We do six trips out and back for 3 miles. We also enjoy visiting the Fisherman's restaurant. The beautiful ocean, the breezes in your face, the great food. What else could you ask for.

Beautiful beach!! Love the fact that there are swings on the beach and bonfire pits. You can peacefully watch the sunset over the ocean and afterwards get a wonderful dinner on the pier. Parking is affordable and becomes free after a certain time. Last year when we walked the pier, there was a great white swimming in and out under... More

Cool place. Sort of upmarket. Beautiful and fashionable people everywhere. Paid parking upfront but you can park further to the north and walk back down

The pier is a great spot to get great photos of the pier, especially at sunset and early evening. The pier is also great for fishing and has a great seafood restaurant, Fisherman's.

A Pier is a Pier, but the San Clemente Pier has beautiful views and is well kept! It was fun to watch the surfers near the Pier!

I love San Clemente Pier & Fishermans Restaurant serves up the best steamed clams. It's always a must when I visit San Clemente.

It's a pier, but as piers go, this is one of the nicer ones. First of all, there's a large public parking lot a mere half block away. The pier is well maintained and is not crammed with commercial activities hawking their wares. That makes for a pleasant stroll watching people fish, kids at play and other strollers enjoying the...

Tis pier is great. It is a nice, sturdy and long pier that you can walk out onto. There are benches and telescopes to use. It was night when I was there so I could just see out a little but. Even still, it is very pretty. I have never been on such a nice pier.
