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.
