  • Pomponio is one of the larger beach parks along Rte 1 between Santa Cruz and San Francisco. Sweeping vistas, intriguing cliffs and rocks. COLD water. Worth 30-60 minutes of meditation.  more »
  • 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.  more »

  • I like is very comfortable and is nice but I think is much better when you going
  • The best beach I have seen in California. I visited there twice. First time I missed the scenic beauty due to cloud but was very lucky in 2016. I witnessed that view. I remember I saw few whales too. The view was brilliant.
