Ate dinner here at restaurant on the pier. Then we scrolled down the pier at night with the family. Gorgeous views! Fun to watch people fishing off the pier. Palm trees and ocean breezes. Great place to visit.

A great place to stroll any time of the day. There is a snack shop at the end of the pier and places to sit and enjoy the view. The sunset is especially beautiful when seen from the end of the pier!

We discovered this beautiful pier a few years back and have come back every year to enjoy walking it. However, that all changed yesterday. We always park on one of the side streets at the top of the hill and have never had a problem....More

Hi Frank, Water temps may be a bit chilly (low 70's) but the surf should not pose a problem. Check in at the website for san-clemente (include a dot and org). The weather cam lets you see what the water looks like. Lots... More
