State Beach - California
Pomponio State Beach 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, was captured and executed in 1824.
