Fun times going on at this pier. Very quaint. Family friendly. A very nice restaurant that has 2 sides to it. One that is a restaurant and the other a bar but it also serves food.

San Clemente Pier is smaller and more off the beaten path than many other piers on the SoCal coast, which adds to its appeal. The pier has a restaurant and oyster bar on it in case you’re hungry as well as a couple of eateries...More

San Clemente is a great little town, especially near the pier. There’s construction going on right now, but you can still walk around and enjoy your stay. I don’t know if they usually have seashells, but we never saw any. We did see lots of...More

What an outstanding place to go visit in the winter. The San Clemente pier is so beautiful with the Pacific ocean surrounding it. There are so many things to do in and around the pier. It is the best place to visit in San Clemente....More

Awesome location, easy to get to and navigate and a lot of small quaint shops, eateries and coffee sops across the street. Fisherman's restaurant on the pier is to die for !!!! Just an all around nice, clean area.

Tough parking, get there early. Eat at the rest. on the pier for breakfast and watch the surfers catch a wave. Great view, and a good time all around. Did I mention parking is a little crowded and tough?? Do it, worth the trip for...More

Parking is in many places and is paid by hour. Pier is wooden and was under construction. Surfers a plenty on the day we went. Beach has many rocks. Very beautiful with the pier and surfers. Several shops and places to eat nearby.

We enjoyed our walk on the pier. It is long but interesting to watch the surfers and the fishermen. At the start on the pier, we especially enjoyed stopping for dinner and a drink at The Fisherman's Restaurant & Bar - great food reasonably priced.

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.
