We took the train to go there, it was cold and overcast, still we have fun discovering lots of different rocks with personality. Talked to other people and enjoyed the peace of the place. I want to go back when the weather is better.

Lots to do at the San Clemente Pier. Good restaurants: sit down, bar, or fast food. Reasonably priced food and ice cream. Take a walk around the pier and enjoy the scenery. Lots of parking close to pier.

San Clemente is a throw back in time to the easy going Southern Californa beach life. The Pier is the center of swimming, surfing and sunning. The restored building across the street provides great pizza, ice cream,coffee and the market has whatever you forgot.

I have to think really near. We had to cross the tracks in order to get on the pier and restaurant. We did not pay attention to the stop in that vicinity. Check the metro link on line for stops.
