Pomponio State Beach in San Gregorio, California

Pomponio State Beach protects about two miles of the California coast about 20 minutes south of Half Moon Bay. Much of the beach in Pomponio is difficult to access from Highway 1 due to thick vegetated hillsides and steep sandstone cliffs. The parking lot is centrally located and has a nice wide sandy beach at the driftwood littered mouth of Pomponio Creek. If you want to explore the hidden reaches of this beach, just walk at lower tides north or south below the picturesque cliffs. Each route is a stunning beach walk ending at other state beaches (Pescadero State Beach to the south and San Gregorio State Beach to the north). Due to the seclusion these areas can have clothing-optional beachgoers. There are picnic tables and barbecues at the Pomponio parking area.
