    San Clemente celebrates sun, surf, and sweeping sands

    San Clemente is a mid-size city based in California’s sun-kissed Orange County. Located on a golden stretch of the California Coast – with its sugary-sand beaches and rolling, white-tipped Pacific surf – San Clemente celebrates Spanish colonial architecture, flower-rich gardens, and farmers’ markets. Outdoor adventurers will also love the beach walks and nature trails that crisscross the surrounding coast. With the wide array of San Clemente vacation rentals on offer, you’re sure to find your perfect California paradise – whether it’s an oceanfront condo, elegant townhouse, or ritzy apartment.

    Surf the waves in San Clemente

    Surfing’s likely be top of the San Clemente activity list for any lover of the outdoors – the city is famed for its surfing heritage, enjoying impressive turquoise waves which crest and tumble against an ensemble of secluded surfer beaches. There’s an abundance of beachside surf shacks selling locally crafted boards, and surf schools for beginners. If surfing isn't for you, take a rejuvenating hike along the grassy bluffs and palm-lined sands of the San Clemente Coastal Trail. Of course, there are endless opportunities to relax on San Clemente’s beaches and catch some honey-like California sunshine.

    Out and about in San Clemente

    Why not spend a morning at The Casa Romantica Cultural Center and Gardens? This early 20th-century historic house, which was once home to Ole Hanson, the founder of San Clemente, is built in a Spanish architectural design and surrounded by palm shaded gardens. Casa Romantica isn’t just an historical and architectural highlight – it also hosts community cultural activities and events, including workshops, theater, and lectures. For more local culture, experience San Clemente’s surfing history at the Surfing Heritage and Culture Center museum. Back by the beach, take a romantic stroll along San Clemente Pier, an old-fashioned timber structure stretching into the aquamarine waters.

    Year-round sunshine in San Clemente

    San Clemente is renowned for its blissful climate – very hot summers, balmy spring and fall seasons, and a short sun-struck winter season where the temperature hovers around 65 degrees during the day. San Clemente’s climate is obviously suited to sun-worshippers – there are around 300 days of sunshine per year, and very little rainfall. And any surfers hunting for San Clemente vacation rentals aren’t restricted by season, as the coast catches swells throughout the year – although, as to be expected, the beaches are busiest during the summer months.

    Pristine beachfront and wild parkland

    San Clemente is based right on the California Coast in Orange County, about halfway between the buzzing city of San Diego to the south and the sprawling, glitzy metropolis of Los Angeles to the north. The city itself is grouped tightly around the wide, sandy beachfront – the midpoint of which is marked by the San Clemente Pier. There are plenty of San Clemente vacation rentals right by the beach that look out over the Pacific Ocean. Behind the city, the landscape transforms into rocky golden hills, with sporadic highways winding toward ranches and canyon-cut regional wilderness parks.
