It's always nice to enjoy the pier and to walk out and see what the Fisherman are pulling out. It is free to walk out on the pier and check out the restaurants.

It is a cool place to walk down to the end of, check out people fishing and to people watch. You can use the restrooms, grab a drink or cocktail, or eat at Fisherman's restaurant, which is on the pier.

We wanted to go to a beach-town South from Los Angeles/Orange County, nearer to San Diego. This was recommended to us. Glad we went. The city is very nice and safe. The pier was fun to walk on. Lots of hobby fishermen. Not lots of...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.
