Fun times going on at this pier. Very quaint. Family friendly. A very nice restaurant that has 2 sides to it. One that is a restaurant and the other a bar but it also serves food.

San Clemente Pier is smaller and more off the beaten path than many other piers on the SoCal coast, which adds to its appeal. The pier has a restaurant and oyster bar on it in case you’re hungry as well as a couple of eateries...More

San Clemente is a great little town, especially near the pier. There’s construction going on right now, but you can still walk around and enjoy your stay. I don’t know if they usually have seashells, but we never saw any. We did see lots of...More
