Pomponio State Beach is a state beach of California in the United States. It is located 12 miles (19 km) south of Half Moon Bay off California State Route 1.
This coastal strip lies between Pescadero and San Gregorio State Beaches. It is made up of several miles of sloping, sandy beaches and a small lagoon below high sandstone bluffs.
A parking lot and a picnic area are available for public use during the day. There are hiking trails and beach access. No camping is available. Dogs and campfires are not permitted on the beach.
The beach was named after José Pomponio Lupugeym, a Bolinas Native American and outlaw. He was a captain of a group that called itself Los Insurgentes, and was captured and executed in 1824.

  • Did a walk at this state beach. Awesome views from the trail above. Parking was convenient. There is a charge for parking.

  • I enjoyed a walk by the Pacific Ocean at Pomponio State Beach Park. There is a small fee for parking. I used my annual state park pass to visit. The beach is just south of Half Moon Bay.

  • This beach shares many different picturesque moments to you no matter the weather condition.
  • Beautiful state beach. Great place if you want to do a long walk on the beach, but check the tide schedule before. The parking is 8$, and we were able to pay with a card.
