Owner description: Scenic beach located a short distance from Pescadero on the San Mateo County coast.
Reviewed 12 April 2016

There are so many breathtaking beaches between San Francisco and Santa Cruz. From my daughter's home in Palo Alto we drove to Half Moon Bay and south to Pomponio Beach. We had 3 youngsters with us ages 2, 5 and 9. Small parking lot with a stinky portapotty and a fee of $8/day. The weekday morning was overcast and winds were chilly so we were one of only a few cars. Surely it's crowded on weekends. It's a long beach with rocks to climb and an inlet for walking. Couldn't tell how far back it went before the ground became more mud than sand. Many rocks and pieces of driftwood on the beach with a few seashells. Such a pleasant day.

Nice picnic beach. Great to explore. Sometimes has washed up wood logs on beach. Kids love this beach.

It is definitely a nice clean beach. Not that many people there. It was nice to be able to sit back and relax without being on top of each other.

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.
