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

Didn't know that you can drive your car on to the Rock until we visited this place over the weekend. Very pretty and a view of the bay and wild life. There were about 100 Sea Otters in the water right off the rocks feeding...More

Stuck out in the sea with surf beach on one side and sheltered harbour with otters on the other. Playful squirrels romp amongst the rock wall too

Visible from miles away, this huge volcanic plug draws your attention to its bulk and the surrounding waters and sandbar. You cannot actually climb the rock, but you can walk most of the way around it from the park below. Parking is available. Also, you...More

Cute touristy downtown with shops and eating spots. Great view of the bay though you do have to overlook the power plant

The rock is an impressive site close up. There is a short history sign that is interesting. The para sailers at the beach provide great entertainment. Sea otters abound in the sheltered areas. A nice place to stop and go for a walk.

You don't realize how big this thing is until you get close up! It was a very fun stop for us along our journey on route 1. To hear the waves crashing and look up at this huge rock - very fun.

Morro Bay is a tourist town without feeling touristy. It has a small-town feel with a lot of friendly people. Everyone we met, from the cashiers to the trolley driver, were super kind. The town is small, but picturesque. Walk along the Embarcadero and shop...More

Unusual sight, worth a short passing visit and a stroll around it but would fit it in with a day at the beach or the nearby state park.

We were unfortunately enveloped in a thick grey wet cold marine mist for most of our visit to Morro Rock. A mile inland it was 25c and sunny but in Morro Bay it was 13c and almost dark the marine mist was so thick so...More

There is a great Bird Festival weekend in mid-January. It is also pupping season at the elephant seal rookery just north of San Simeon, less than an hour away. Lots of year-round hiking in Morro Bay, Montaña de Oro, Irish... More

Yes, It will be wonderful! It might be foggy and cool but that doesn't ever detract from the beauty. Go and enjoy!
