We ran on it in the mornings then walked it at night. Such a busy place but never felt crowded. Interesting people to watch and views of water and sky to be remembered forever!

The San Clemente pier is functional, not for entertainment per se, and we walked up and down while waiting for our table at Fishermans restaurant. It was really cool seeing all the people night fishing, and the sinks and cutting get boards we're different from other piers we've visited.

Not the greatest pier ever, in terms of size, but possibly the best views, sunsets, picture spot. Just ridiculously beautiful watching the sunset while the surfers rip by just feet away. Not too crowded. Love this place!

Nice views, the park and pier are attractive. The Amtrak train track runs through it but adds to the experience.

Lots of inexpensive parking. The pier has a great beach with showers and rest rooms. There are several restaurants and lots of people enjoying the water.

Beautiful sunsets can be viewed from the pier. Great walk anytime of day. Fisherman by day. The city hosts a few events on the pier throughout the year, like seafest and the clam chowder contest. Attached to the pier is Fishermans restaurant. Great happy hour, sit down dinner and drinks. Good for all occasions
