“Great spot.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

Pier is great place to watch the local surfers in action. Standing on the pier you are right above and along side them, so you get to see them from a different aspect and up close. The pier also provides a nice place to stroll and the view looking back to San Clemente city is a good one. You may also be lucky to spot dolphins and take in a sunset.

“Best fish at the pier.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2013

Service and food is the best for sea food anywhere around So. Cal. Owners seem to care. Always clean and quiet. Get view of the water.
Best a night.

This is THE perfect spot to watch the sunset! Taking pictures of the sunset here never gets old. You can't help but feel romance in the air when you stroll the pier at the magic hour!

“Jewel in the crown of this adorable, sleepy beach town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2013

The park and the pier were a short walk away from where I stayed and it's very peaceful and beautiful. A great place to sit down and enjoy the view. Plenty of seating and the pier is fun for watching surfers brave the cold waters of the Pacific.
