Pier was really nice, restaurants overlook the water. Lots of things to do on the beach. Only thing is the beach is really rocky and my girls got cut up playing in the water from the rocks..

The Amtrak train tracks lie smack in between the beach and the main street along the coast. Since the sound of trains (as well as loud noises for that matter) scare me, I didn't enjoy the little time I spent there all that much. The...More

We took the train to go there, it was cold and overcast, still we have fun discovering lots of different rocks with personality. Talked to other people and enjoyed the peace of the place. I want to go back when the weather is better.

Lots to do at the San Clemente Pier. Good restaurants: sit down, bar, or fast food. Reasonably priced food and ice cream. Take a walk around the pier and enjoy the scenery. Lots of parking close to pier.

My adult children and I took the train from Corona to the San Clemente station. We walked along the beach and the pier, then ate at one of the restaurants. It was a lot of fun.

San Clemente is a throw back in time to the easy going Southern Californa beach life. The Pier is the center of swimming, surfing and sunning. The restored building across the street provides great pizza, ice cream,coffee and the market has whatever you forgot.

The law says that you can fish without a license but it must be catch and release, if you want to bring the fish home you need a license

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.
