San Clemente Pier-Pacific Surfer and Orange County Metrolink

As the train heads north into Orange County, the tracks go right along the coast, with beautiful ocean views.  The first station in Orange County is at San Clemente Pier.  This station serves Amtrak and Metrolink's Orange County line and the Inland Empire-Orange County Line.  There are very few trains that stop at the pier.  The San Clemente Pier was the 60th busiest in 2010, boarding or detraining an average of approximately 25 passengers daily.  There is a ticket kiosk, but no ticket office.  Dining, lodging and restroom facilities are around the pier, which is within close proximity to the station.  Paid parking is on the street or in an adjacent municipal lot.

  1. I used to work for a company that installed custom garage cabinets and flooring. My territory was Seal Beach down to San Clemente. I often sat at the San Clemente train station during my lunch hour. Beautiful down there.

    1. Definitely! Mari and I walk at the San Clemente Beach Trail!
