Come Play in the Sand

Escape for a beach day in San Clemente where you can plant your umbrella in the sand, roll out your towel and soak up the sun. It is one of our top destinations. Still there’s more to this station than a day at the beach. We’ve created several day trip options including outlet shopping and going for an easy beach cruise to and from the pier.
