Pescadero State Beach (meaning "the place to fish" in Spanish) is a beach located 14.5 miles south of Half Moon Bay and 1.5 miles east of Pescadero off State Route 1, in San Mateo County, California.

The beach has a mile-long shoreline with sandy coves, rocky cliffs, tide pools, fishing spots and picnic facilities. Across the highway is Pescadero Marsh Natural Preserve, a popular spot for bird watchers and other naturalists.
