About Morro Bay

For Lovers of the Outdoors

For Lovers of the Outdoors | Overlooking the Pacific Ocean on Highway 1, just west of the 101, is the seaside community of Morro Bay. With its rich and varied array of State Parks and Reserves, Nature Preserves, agriculture lands and open space, the Morro Bay estuary, seashore and coastal lands are a nature enthusiast's paradise. It's also one of the best-kept secrets among the CA Coast Communities. Count on an unhurried pace, less crowded places to visit, and undiscovered treasures.

Morro Rock

The Rock, a volcanic plug rises 581 feet into the air at the entrance of the harbor and is home to the Peregrine Falcon. The area surrounding the base of Morro Rock can be visited. The rock is protected as the Morro Rock State Preserve. Climbing on the rock or disturbing the bird life is forbidden by law. This means you can't fly your drone near the rock! Geologically, Morro Rock, located in San Luis Obispo County, in the town of Morro Bay, California, is one of 13 volcanic, intrusive units that form volcanic plugs (remnant volcanic necks of volcanoes).

No Shortage of Activities

Morro Bay means a Fresh Fish dinner on the bay, visiting several Art Galleries, Golfing, Bird Watching, Surfing. Boating, Kayaking, Hiking or just plain relaxing.

Places to see when you visit include Montaña de Oro State Park, Sweet Springs Nature Preserve, the Elfin Forest, the pier and village shops at Baywood Park, and Los Osos Oaks State Reserve.

Morro Bay Harbor is home to one of California's largest and most productive commercial fishing fleets and provides area restaurants and fish markets with the freshest of seafood.

Bird Sanctuary & Golf!

Morro Bay is also a bird sanctuary providing a nourishing habitat to more than two dozen threatened and endangered species. The last estuary of its kind between Mexico and Northern California, Morro Bay is a major stop of the Pacific flyway. More than 70 migratory bird species make their winter home here.

Morro Bay's Public Golf Course is our best kept secret! The beautiful 18 hole course overlooks the ocean nestled near the Great Blue Heron Rookery and Natural History Museum.

Kids will love the new Tidelands Park at the south end of the Embarcadero. The location is perfect to watch boats come and go.

Shell Shop

Take home a unique treasure from the famous Shell Shop, ride on the Tiger's Folly, a popular replica of an old Mississippi River Boat, visit the Specialty Shops at the Marina Square and ride around the town on the Morro Bay Trolley.

Just a few miles down the road is Los Osos, gateway to the magnificent Montana de Oro State Park. The parks' name, meaning Mountain of Gold, is believed to have come from the color of the hillsides in spring. Today, Montana de Oro is home to over 8,000 acres of rugged wilderness and jagged coastline. One of the state's most breathtaking parks, it is a favorite of hikers, bicyclists, campers, and surfers.
