Beach Information Special Comments:
For Your Convenience
One of OC's most classic beach communities, with easy beach access, lots of nearby amenities, an adjacent Amtrak station, and classic old downtown San Clemente just off the sand. The extended hours cater to the avid pier-fishing crowd. Even the surf is moderately good with a nice sandy bottom. It's all very family- and kid-friendly (the ratio of youngsters to adults is about 75/25).
Food/Dining: Concessions are located at the base of the pier, while restaurants are found on the pier and Avenida Victoria.
Facilities: Lifeguards, surfing, bus stop, food stands, picnic tables, rentals, showers, basketball courts, volleyball.
Restrooms: Fair, but upgrades are in progress.
Dogs: Not allowed. Period.
