San Mateo County Nude Beach Guide

San Mateo County Nude Beaches

Nude beaches in San Mateo County are few but popular.

You may occasionally find out-of-date resources that say Montara State Beach and Pomponio State Beach are nude beaches, but they are NOT RECOMMENDED. Montara has too many clothed families on it (and rangers can cite you for nudity there) and Pomponio is hard and dangerous to get to.
