"SITTING AT THE ROCK OF THE BAY" Top 5 Page for this destination Morro Bay by travelgourmet

Morro Bay Travel Guide: 100 reviews and 262 photos


Your first sight of Morro Bay is on Hwy 1. The imposing mountain of rock seen at the ocean's edge is the famous Morro Rock, located at the northern end of the embarcadero in Morro Bay, the hidden jewel of the south central coast of Hwy 1.

There is something for everyone in Morro Bay. Sand and sea, golfing and sailing. Shopping, dining, walking, bicyling, or just driving around to see the Blue Heron Rookery or the up close view of Morro Rock is worth the side trip on Hwy 1 or even to spend the night in this charming coastal village.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:A nice getaway.
  • Cons:Many tourists on the weekend's.
  • In a nutshell:Charming and quaint with a little quirky thrown in.

    Thanks for the tips. My brother lives near L.A., and I'm leaving a lot of the planning to them since I am now in England. I've always loved this part of CA and needed to show it to my new husband.

    I kinda liked the 3 Stooges Larry - they do have a character all of their own, despite being ludicrously incongruous with the place. Nice page. Cheers, John.

    morro bay is a fine little place. i cycled through twice and also managed to find a very nice little pub with live music and micro brews.
