5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

Great beach for walking, relaxing, enjoying the day, and the sunsets, especially during the week when few are around.

“Great Place to Watch Sunsets”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Had a week stay in San Clemente at a timeshare and went to the San Clement State Beach two of the evenings at sunset. Enjoyed the beach, listening to the waves, and seeing some incredible sunsets! Well worth the time.

“Great Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

Long area for relaxing, swim and belly boarding. Pay parking if required and bathroom facilities. Liked the feel of being away from it all!

“Enjoy the walk and ocean views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

For the most part it is a nice quiet relaxing spot, great for walking or just unwinding. Holiday weekends you might choose another spot. Aside from those holiday weekends parking is adequate.
A nice spot to watch the sunset and listen to the waves.
