BeachExpert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • Walk a half mile north from the Pier to Surf Beach 204 for great tidepooling. They aren't the largest tidepools in the world, but they are absolutely teeming with sea life.
  • The beach to the south of the Pier has a no-surfing policy in summer, but it's popular with boogie boarders and swimmers. The beach to the north of the pier has decent access and is occasionally supervised.
Built in 1928, San Clemente Pier is a great place to watch surfers, fish, and eat. Check out one of the town's many surfing contests from the Pier.
