About San Clemente


From North Beach to Trestles, the Pier to Talega, San Clemente is a city full of rich history and culture. Known as the “Spanish Village By the Sea,” San Clemente started as a little 2,000-acre community built in 1925 by the former Mayor of Seattle, and a major land developer, Ole Hanson.

The city was named after San Clemente Island, which was named by the explorer Vizcaino in 1602. San Clemente Island was named after Saint Clemente, whose day of celebration occurs on the same day Vizcaino arrived on the island.

Ole Hanson speculated that this new community would appeal to Californians who were sick of the big city, and he was sure right. Hanson successfully promoted and sold land in the new community. He built out public structures like the pier, the beach club, the community center, and Max Berg Plaza Park. The city was incorporated in 1928.

Almost 100 years later, San Clemente is still known today for its Mediterranean renaissance style architecture. Red tile roofs, cream stucco, wood windows, and wood floors can still be seen throughout the city. The oldest homes can be found just south of the downtown.

San Clemente Today

San Clemente is the southernmost city in Orange County, California. Located on the border of San Diego County, San Clemente is still the most sleepy beach town in Orange County. With a population of approximately 65,300, San Clemente is known for its “Best Climate in the World,” surf breaks, sandstone bluffs, and slower pace of life.

With over 300 days of sunshine, ocean views from just everywhere, and some of the best surf on the west coast, it’s no wonder San Clemente is home to surf fanatics, young professionals, and wealthy adults alike.

San Clemente has a thriving food scene and its fair share of boutiques as well. Take a stroll down Avenida Del Mar, and you’ll find your fair share of gourmet (And affordable) restaurants, surf shops, boutiques, the public library, and more. If you keep on going down Del Mar, you’ll end up on the pier, where you can get a great view of the sunset and Catalina in the distance.

Oh, and you can’t miss the attire here either. Flip flops, T-shirts and trucker hats are the norm, while a button-down shirt and jeans are considered fancy.

Life in San Clemente is a nice slow pace.

Real Estate Investing in San Clemente

With any desirable beach town comes the opportunity to make it big with real estate. Surely you’ve heard the phrase “Location, Location, Location.” Well, that couldn’t be truer here. The beach, shopping, freeway, and amenities are all at your doorstep.
