El Portal Beach, also known as Buena Vista Beach, is accessed at the intersection of Buena Vista and El Portal.  It has a steep stair trail down to the train tracks and the beach. It’s a narrow beach so much of it is covered during high tide. However, this is a popular surf spot and it’s just north of Dije Court Beach.  You can also access the San Clemente Coastal Trail from this area.  Street parking available.
