Pomponio State Beach is a beach located 12.5 miles (20.1 km) south of Half Moon Bay and 2.5 miles (4.0 km) east of Pescadero off State Route 1, California, USA.

This area provides access to miles of gently sloping, sandy beaches at the base of high sandstone bluffs. This day-use facility features a small lagoon, roaring surf - and a wide parking area, picnic tables, and barbecues.

It was named after José Pomponio Lupugeym.
