“Don't Miss the Sunset”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012

We walked, a bit longer than we thought, but found the beach access and finally got to our destination with plenty of time to enjoy the beautiful colors and ever soul uplifting sight.

“Geat View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Since we live in Kentucky....it's not often we can enjoy a view of the ocean and surfers as we eat dinner. IT was clean, and great to watch the sunset over the ocean. We got there about 4:30 and parking was plentiful. I guess we got there after the daytime beach users were leaving and before the dinner crowd arrived. We really enjoyed our sunset dinner and walk along the pier.

“Sunset delight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

If you are in San Clemente a walk on the pier for sunset is a delight you will cherish. Gorgeous, gorgeous and gorgeous with 2 great restaurants for drinks and food. Fun to watch the surfers and one time we observed thousands of fish in large schools swimming and coming up with a popping noise - magical.

“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!
