We have owned property and lived here part time for over 11 years, moving here 2.5 years ago. We have been married for 18 years and had our wedding on the beach taking our vows with the ocean waves around our feet. We have a deep love of the Ocean and San Clemente and are happy with the beach lifestyle. Don grew up inland but spent large amounts of time in San Clemente visiting his aunt and camping, fishing, riding waves and playing in the sand. Miriam grew up in north Orange County next door to Huntington Beach basking in the year around warmth that Southern California beach towns provide.
For Don's whole life he spent vacations and weekends in San Clemente in the neighborhood we live in. We are comfortable here with forever memories and a deep love for a place that has always been a part of Don's life. North Beach is alive with people living, working, bringing up their family's. It is real here, not a tourist trap, you live like a local in North Beach.
Being able to live (where my heart always was) is why I first moved here. Falling into the arms of the Village, letting it change my heart, slow me down and become one with the rhythm of the sea. To be able to quickly walk to the beach and see all the way to the horizon, or watch Dolphins play in the surf and Whales out sea. Go for a swim on a whim. Smile while walking a mile to the pier. The ocean breeze cooling the house down with a fresh smell. The smell of a beach bon fire in the breeze in the evening. Everything so alive around me reminding me that life is good and beautiful and fun.
What matters is what is in your back yard. If you don't live at the beach right next to it, then, well, you are not living at the beach.
San Clemente is The Little Village By The Sea. Though we have grown up somewhat, we retained our charm. Our downtown street walk was recently voted best in Orange County, hosting a Farmer's Market every Sunday morning and an accompaning art show the first Sunday of every month.
The 2.5 mile Beach Trail starts in North Beach and goes south to the San Clemente State Park. From there you can walk several more miles on the sand past world famous surfing spots and historical homes then arrange to be picked up for a ride back home. The 1/4 mile long pier hosts wonderful food at The Fisherman's restaurant and bar located right above the surf line. Fishing off the pier is fun and free, requiring no fishing license. The walk on the pier reveals the entire shoreline of San Clemente in all its glory by day and the lights at night. The snack bar at the end of the pier will delight you with hot and cold drinks and great food.
San Clemente is loaded with great food to fit any budget. Remember, this is a real town with a thriving business environment and diverse population. The restaurants reflect the community, providing a full list of dining opportunities and options. The surfing here is made of legends. The surfing museum displays a massive collection of boards and memorabila. The beaches are the perfect place to learn to surf (lessons available), boogie board or body surf. Should you prefer to just play in the surf and sunbathe, no worries, there is room for all. Learn how to stand up paddle board surf.
Close by is Dana Point Harbor, where you can go whale watching, fishing, sailing on a Tall Ship, explore boating, rent jet skis, sail boats, paddle boards, kayaks, gas boats and take a boat trip to Catalina Island for the day. The Ocean Institute will delight you with a look below the seas and tall Ships above the seas. San Clemente has a vibrant art scene with many galleries and its own museum. Many art shows take place during the year showcasing local artists.
