Nice views

The pier in San Clemente is not so overcrowded like the other piers in SoCal. It's really nice when the trains go by.

The pier is the best attraction in San Clemente. Know this: you have to pay for parking from 10 am to 5 pm every day. After 5 pm parking is free, but people regularly keep paying even when they don't need to. Fisherman's Restaurant on the pier gets voted best in SC each year. Good happy hour dinner. Also, no...

Easy parking, beautiful park, great place! Truly a place you should put on your itinerary along with the downtown area that's right here.

If you are visiting California and want to really see it, this is a must stop. The pier is in a city with much to offer. The pier itself offers fishing and a restaurant and bar. Living in San Clemente we always take visitors to Fisherman's bar for a drink in paradise.

The San Clemente Pier has two restaurants on it. Both have Happy Hour ads and the reports we heard were good. It's a fun place to stroll and watch the waves and fishermen. There is also a shopping area nearby. The parking is either meters on the street or a pay lot ($1.50 per hour).

Fun place to go for a stroll and enjoy the ocean. Good food and facilities for a great day at the beach. Well taken care of but little parking. They need much much more

Great neighborhood and atmosphere, you feel like you have experienced Southern California when you visit, beach, surfing, restaurants, bars, stores, a nice spot. Dining on the pier at "Fisherman's" is a must.
