Nick's San Clemente
Downtown is a half-mile walk from the pier to downtown on Avenida Del Mar.
The San Clemente Trolley is not operating at this time due to COVID-19, but the shops and restaurants in Downtown San Clemente are a very short Uber or Lyft ride away if you don’t care to walk the half-mile.
When planning your Daycation to San Clemente we recommend checking the Metrolink train schedule for either the Pier Station or North Beach Station.
