About Poche Beach in San Clemente, California

Poche Beach is located where Camino Capistrano runs into El Camino Real at the city border of San Clemente and the Dana Point community of Capistrano Beach. Poche Beach is a public beach, but it is in front of the private Shorecliffs Beach Club of San Clemente. There are no public facilities at this location. A pedestrian underpass under the train tracks at this intersection takes you to the beach – just look for the sign marked “Coastal Access.” A creek flows to the beach at this same spot. Walking north on the beach will take you in front of homes on Beach Road in Capistrano Beach and walking south takes you along a narrow beach in front of Senda de la Playa homes in San Clemente. The Capo Beach homes and beach are both more impressive. Remember that the public portion of these beaches is below the mean high tide line and since high tide is usually at the back of the beach, the beach is entirely public. Note also that when the tide is up, it’s hard to walk far on the beach unless you are ok getting wet.
