The pier is quite picturesque, but due to current works going on, we were unable to go all the way along. We were here in the middle of the day but can just imagine how beautiful it would be at sunset.

Beautiful long pier in central San Clemente to observe the waves, the coast and locals catching fish or, in our case, a small sting ray

This is one of the longer piers in Southern California. It provides great views both left and right of the beach and cliffs. The Amtrak trains go past, providing some excitement, and the occasional one stops to let off it passengers for a lovey time...More

Lovely old traditional pier. Lovely walk out to end with great views of the beach on either side and of war ships leaving San Diego going north. Surfers and fisherman, families and couples. All enjoy the pier.

The law says that you can fish without a license but it must be catch and release, if you want to bring the fish home you need a license

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.
