Poneloyaâ€™s sweeping crescent of black and gold sand, ample fish and rolling breakers seem destined to turn the tiny town into a hotspot. Since Poneloya is located only a 40 minute bus ride from Leon, the townâ€™s single street has already filled up with vacation homes. Unless you visit during Semana Santa or other high holiday, though, youâ€™re likely to find that you have the wide beach to yourself. Accommodations and eateries are also scarce; Hotel La Casa Blanca and Hotel and Restaurante Posada del Poneloya are your only choices for sleeping. More options can be found down the beach (or about 3 km along the road) in Las Penitas.
