South Swell is located in the heart of San Clemente, created and owned by locals that are committed to serving off-the-wall creations and the community. South Swell is ice cream that serves an experience. Our vanilla or chocolate ice cream bars start with a dip in warm, smooth chocolate, followed by your choice of a classic topping, design your own, or, if you're an adventure seeker, you can choose from one of our intense, salty, or decadently indulgent creations. Our menu is rotating, giving your tastebuds new opportunities to explore, create, and devour each time you visit. If floats are your thing, you can enjoy your bar in any one of our many soda options. Up for the adventure? Come create, indulge, and share with us.
