Easy to park here and beautiful surf. There are plenty of picnic tables (good for me since I can't be on sand). Really scenic and also lovely with a great tide pool too. Perfect for folks with kids.

We wanted to halt at Half Moon Bay in the AN on a Friday on our way to Carmel via California Route 1 but found the place very crowded . So , we drove further north about 12 miles and spotted a small beach with easy access from road , almost empty but for a few couples relaxing in the sun on the lagoon. While there are high sandstone cliffs all around , the beach itself is fairly flat ,with a good parking facility and offers good privacy.
Named after Jose Pomponio , a Bolinas Native American outlaw , the beach offers some gorgeous views of the ocean .There is no food available and for any logistics, you need to travel to San Gregario town 3miles away .There is no camping grounds and dogs are not permitted in the beach. This beautiful beach is defenitely worth a halt if you are traveling on Route 1.

Relaxing beach. Clean and beautiful. So many things to do . No food options nearby and traffic can be messy.

Very pretty. When we were there the lagoon must have been at low tide, because there were actually places you could walk in wet sand to get to the beach, but your feet will get wet.

This is a beautiful sandy beach with a million photo ops. Nice little lagoon between beach and highway. Good family beach. Parking lot fills up on nice weekends.
