great pier to walk on and see the ocean on both side, sunset the best. Don't miss the Fisherman Restaurant either on both side with outstanding views. The best Seafood and happy hrs with a view.

“Love the Pier area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

I live in San Clemente so have had plenty of opportunities to visit the Pier area. It is quite beautiful and fun to watch surfers on the north side of the Pier. You can park further north at North Beach and walk the beach trail to the Pier area (about a mile). Then head up Del Mar to explore the cute shops and enjoy the restaurants. Nicks is terrific. The little Crepe shop across from the pier is fun too. Don't miss the Friends of the Library book store in the back of the public library - great prices on books!

“Lunch on the Pier”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Had a nice lunch and walk with the family on the Pier. Parking in the area was a challenge as it will be with any beach city, but found a space a few blocks away.

“We lucked out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

We were in San Clemente for a wedding and went to the Pier to sight see. First parking stinks if you don't get there early. But there was the annual clam chowder taste off. Great fun! The whole pier is packed with clam chowder booths. Then we had barbequed Maine lobster on the beach. Hint - buy two halves and share.
