Otters are always there entertaining. Also had Peregrine falcons with nest on rock face. Early May is very quiet. Good restaurants close by

Its a nice place if you are in the area, not worth it for a special visit. We saw different animals there, including few sea otters which was cool. Next to it there is a beach that is suppose to be good for surfing, I am not an expert so I cannot say.

More rock is a good place to go to see the otters in the bay and to just relax! When the surface hi he will see the surfers on the north side of the rock catching all the big waves! I love the whole town of Morro Bay!!

The Morro Rock fits very well with the nice view of Morro Bay. It is a landmark between the bay and the beach. You can park in front of the rock, take pictures, enjoy the beach, or take a walk by the bay to visit some stores or have a meal in some nice restaurants around.

We only stayed in Morro for a few hours on our RV trip but the whole town has a great vibe, friendly and interesting. The rock being at its centre, we saw the rock close up and later in the day from high ground inland. On both occasions it looked impressive.
