Home to flocks of Peregrine falcons, egrets and blue herons, the 50-acre Morro Rock is the last in a chain of extinct volcanoes.

Morro rock can be seen from just about anywhere along the PCH in the San Luis Obispo coast area. It's full of human beach activity with various types of shore birds and even ducks. Great place to spend a hot summer day. The breeze was...More

This isn't a review of pubs, bars, or breweries, rather it is a review of Morro Bay Rock which is magnificent.

We had a wonderfull evening to see the roch which is in the mid of the ocean. This gave a very nice view with the coloured sky. The rock itself doesn't seem to be very special

We loved Morro Beach and Morro Rock! The beaches have huge dunes and beautiful fine soft sand. It is clean and ample space for everyone. This picturesque scenery should not be missed!

You can no longer climb the Rock, but this is where the sea otters hang and where you can kayak and paddle board if you are beginners.
