Corto Lane San Clemente Beaches
San Clemente Beach Trail
This beach is just a few hundred feet away from the San Clemente Pier and could be considered the same beach. Corto Lane is just north of the pier and is a great spot to visit around the pier for a day at the beach. Corto Lane has volleyball courts, swing sets for kids, restrooms, and fire pits to enjoy during your time at the beach. It's a great spot to visit during the day for swimming, surfing, boogie boarding, and anything you can think of in the water. At night this spot has a great view of the pier to the south and the coastline trailing north. Corto Lane and the San Clemente Pier also have concession stands that are open during the summer in addition to the restaurant and bar on the pier. Additional food and dining options are just across the street from the pier.
