Inscription.  Welcome to historic San Clemente Pier. The original San Clemente Municipal Fishing and Pleasure Pier was built by San Clemente city founder Ole Hanson in 1928. In 1939 and again in 1983, heavy storms severely damaged the pier making it necessary to rebuild the structure.

Today, San Clemente Pier is 1,296 feet in length and hosts over 2 million visitors annually. The Pier is a San Clemente Historic Resource and is a popular place for surfing, fishing, sunsets, and relaxing at the beach.
 
Erected by Pier Pride.
