Peaceful relaxing time just watching the waves come in. Close enought to half moon bay to check out local eateries and get back to the beach. Nice clean beach.

Pomponio State Beach is a simple beach. Simply beautiful and not usually too crowded or cluttered. The Yelp Reviews give a more opinionated description, but it is located not far from San Gregorio beach and the San Gregorio County Store which has live music as well as food and a unique collection of bumper stickers and other things you might not need, but maybe want anyway. Pomponio State Beach is also in close proximity to Pescadero and Duarte's Tavern. Simply nice.

It's a beach, not particularly attractive, but lots of sand and surf (no swimming - it's cold and rough). This may be a jaded viewpoint but I like beaches w trees, or at least something to love in the view

A nice bit of beach when exploring Half Moon Bay just off Highway One as we were heading up to San Francisco.

Its very scenic and it was just a shame we only had a brief stopover.

We loved stopping at this beach. The hiking was fun and we loved the cliffs and beach. Make this spot a stopping point as you drive down Highway 1. It's worth the time -- make some memories there!
