San Clemente Activities

So Much To Do… So Little Time

San Clemente Activities could keep you busy for a month. But, you are only here for a week?

Well, you better not waste time and just stick with the best of the best.

Not the Outdoors Type?

This city is famous for outdoor activities.

With “The Finest Climate in the World”, San Clemente residents go outside and take advantage of our 342 days of sunshine.

One of the best ways to do this is to go beach camping. San Clemente has two great California State Parks for beach camping, San Clemente State Beach and San Onofre State Beach .

Facilities include RV hookups, bathrooms, hot showers, bbq's, and fire pits. They each sit on the Bluff above World Famous Surfing Breaks , Trestles and San Onofre.

Surfing is one of the biggest pastimes of San Clemente Locals. If you are going to pay a visit to San Clemente, be sure to watch professional level surfers at any one of the famous surf breaks.

Or, take a lesson of your own! Surf Camps offer lessons and equipment rentals for one low price, and some even guarantee you stand up or your money back!

Boogey boarding and body surfing are also very popular. Most the beaches have designated spots for surfing or swimming for safety.

A yellow flag with a black ball in the middle means you cannot surf at that beach but you can swim or boogey board.

Did you know San Clemente has one of the best preserved tide pools in all of Southern California?

Open water kayaking, one of my favorite San Clemente Activities, has been gaining in popularity among beach goers. With San Clemente’s calm seas and vibrate wild life, it can be quite an experience.

While out on our kayak, my husband and I have spotted dolphin, seal, and schools of sardines.

More of a land lover, than a fish? How about a game of Beach Volleyball? San Clemente is home to such names in volleyball as Karch Kiraly and Brent Doble who train at the local courts regularly.

Watch the pros or start your own game with your friends, there are enough courts for everyone. Some groups meet regularly like the girls group at Lost Winds every Thursday at 9:00am.

Not a sand lover either? No problem, a round of Golf will do you good. San Clemente has four courses; Talega, Pacific, Shorecliffs, and San Clemente Municipal Golf Course. To See San Clemente's Four Distinctive Golf Courses Click Here.

San Clemente Activities wouldn't be complete without Marked Trails for hiking, biking, and horseback riding that payoff with spectacular views. Take a small one mile loop or a 6 mile trek. There are also many unmarked trails that wind up into the San Clemente Hills that locals have been using for years.

The California Bike Route goes directly through the scenic parts of the city. Rent a bike or bring your own.

A competitive rider? Well then throw on your jersey and ride with the San Clemente Cycling Club.

Just a novice? Riding with kids? The whole family can participate in San Clemente Activities at the Forrester Ranch Green Belt for a 2.4 mile round trip ride on flat, wide, paved trail among trees and fields of grass.

Love to fish? Try the fishing pier equipped with cutting boards and sinks. Fishermen catch halibut daily, mmmmm!

Some groups even do these activities in the nude! To learn about Naturist San Clemente Activities Click Here.
