SAN CLEMENTE—Sometimes when looking back on history, it’s a marvel to see how much an area changed. Other places manage to keep the same spirit alive despite the world’s ever-changing ways: San Clemente Pier is one of those places. Pictured here in the 1950s, you can see the hoards of people gathered at San Clemente Pier on a beautiful, sunny, Southern California day to fish, swim and enjoy their time near the ocean.
San Clemente is still a great location for all kinds of on-water activities and the pier still stands today.
