Beautiful long pier to watch the sunset

The long pier in San Clemente juts out into the Pacific Ocean. We enjoyed walking through the wooded planks of the pier. The surfers can be seen below while they swim through the cool waters of the sea awaiting for the next big wave to come in so they can ride it. Through the walk, the doves are busily alighting...

We planned to spend the night in San Clemente... and went to the beach in the evening just to occupy time. We took a walk out on the Pier during sunset... and experienced a beautiful event as the settign sun's colors washed back on the shore, beach, palm trees... We are coming back, just for the Beach.

As a young Marine, I spent many weekend days or nights visiting the San Clemente Pier. 15 years later, it was nice to take my teen and preteen kids and wife for a stroll down the pier. During a hectic, full-scheduled Christmas trip to L.A., we decided to visit San Clemente and the hour or so we spent on the... More

Great place to wander, hangout, enjoy an afternoon or evening. Sunset view is great or watch for occasional music shows too. Parking is usually available except for event times then plan on a walk. Don't miss checking out the remodeled Beachcomber for a future overnight stay too.

Everyone loves the pier if you can find a place to park. It is a wonderful place to watch the sunset and watch the whales go by and watching the surfers and especially good for people watching.

If you are looking for a beautiful view after your 1+ mile walk there is no better ending to experience. Pier reaches out into the ocean with lovely costal views as you look back towards land. Experienced during the day - but must be a lovely place for sunset!
