Nomads Hotel is located in the heart of downtown San Clemente. San Clemente is a city located on the California Coast, midway between Los Angeles and San Diego at the southern tip of Orange County. San Clemente is known for its ocean, hill, and mountain views, a pleasant climate and its Spanish Colonial style architecture. The city's slogan is “Spanish Village by the Sea”.
It is a perfect description for the quaint and charming town. The downtown area is the heart of San Clemente and includes an eclectic blend of antique shops, restaurants, boutiques, and businesses. Home to some of the best beaches in Southern California, downtown San Clemente’s tree-lined streets and historic wood pier provide a unique shopping and dining experience.
It is also home to one of the best surf breaks in the world. There are many breaks within minutes of Nomads Hotel. San Clemente Pier and T-Street are just a short walk from Nomads but the main attraction for surfers in San Clemente is Trestles. Trestles is 5 short minutes away from the hotel.
At the most southern end of Orange County lies the Trestles experience, one-and-a-half miles of God’s country. There are no metered parking, Ruby’s Diner at the end of the pier, black balls, closeouts, volleyball nets or “Baywatch” sets. Simply put, Trestles is one of those destinations that just about any devoted surfer finds hard to resist.
Lowers is the apex of everything surf in Southern California - peak action, A-framing rights and lefts and even a peek-a-boo view from the freeway. It is ground zero for high-octane surfing. Offering forgivable, rip able walls going, either way, Lower Trestles only closes out on the rarest of swells.
While the surf media limelight tends to focus itself a quarter-mile south, Upper Trestles steadily grinds out quality cobblestone right-handers that are often equally as impressive as Lowers. If the river is flowing, Uppers can even offer a short, punchy left into the mouth. But the focus is always on the rights, especially since Uppers draws in a bit more west and northwest energy than its sister to the south.
The long, yet often-fat left breaks further off the beach than any of the other nearby spots. Depending on sand build up and the tide, the wave offers a rather flat face - perfect for working on your cutbacks. However, if there’s a large, long-period southerly swell and a minus low tide, Cottons turns into a quality high-performance wave, complete with a crackable lip-line and multiple barrel sections before unloading into the menacing shore break.
Church is the farthest spot south in the Trestles arena. Also a river mouth, Church is pretty much good year-round but prefers a west swell with medium high tides to produce long, down-the-line rights with some hollow sections. South swells have multiple take-off zones but a big southwest can get all time.
San Onofre State Beach is the Waikiki of the California Coastline - a beginner’s paradise of gentle breaking waves, long sandy beaches and an absence of ego. It is one of the last few beaches that epitomizes the California surfing lifestyle. On any given summer weekend, you can find a whole tribe of surfers playing volleyball, talking story and swilling beer under grassy huts or sitting hunched over their longboards, waiting for the next lazy peak to float their way.
T Street is known primarily for one thing - consistency. The entire West Coast from Jordan River to Cabo could be flat, and T Street, the central hub for San Clemente’s finest, would manage to cough up a wave or two that would make some surfer happy. There are a lot of things that help T Street break namely sandbars, reefs, rocks and odd seaweed gardens all contribute to the wave’s quirky behavior.
You will be served daily breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Beach BBQ (groups of 3 or more) is also included in this package.
