We stopped here after packing up at our hotel and before hitting the road. If you like a little walk, park in the farther parking lot, not right up at the rock itself. It was a treat watching the sea otters, peregrine falcons and a...More

Walk around the Rock and experience the peregrine falcons and sea otters. We loved our visit - it was very windy so surfers were out. Great entertainment all around.

See the rock. Surf the waves. Walk the beach. The beach goes on forever. Enjoy the pretty views, especially sunset. Ample parking, but gravel and dirt lot.

Such a monolithic site in a very flat area. Look for the face shaped outline on the West Side of the rock facing the sea. Excellent walking area. The town is very pleasant and relaxing.

Definitely worth viewing from along the shore. You will get some amazing photos! The small harbor is scenic and there are birds galore - speaking of which, be sure to visit the bird refuge adjacent to the Inn at Morro Bay to see lots of...More

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

Sorry, it is illegal to climb the Rock as it disturbs the birds and their nesting areas. I think someone tried a while back to propose to his girl friend and got arrested. I think some of the parks in the area have hiking... More
