Morro Bay consists of three unique California Central Coast communities:
Los Osos. At the end of scenic Highway One is
Estero Bay. The area has become famous for its beautiful state parks,
bird estuary’s, and the distinct Morro Rock. Tourists and locals both
enjoy a variety of activities in the area, including fishing, surfing,
kayaking, golfing, bird watching, beachcombing, or just relaxing and
enjoying the sunset. Besides the nature and recreation of Estero Bay,
there are also fine restaurants, and unique shops.
Morro Bay, the largest of the three cities, is at the heart of Estero
Bay. Morro Rock, the last in a chain of long-extinct volcanoes, covers
over 50 acres at its base and towers 576 feet above the entrance to
Morro Bay. The waters that make up the bay are contained within a
three-mile sandpit and the shores of Morro Bay and Los Osos. The local
fishing industry is one of the most important along the California
Coast. On the Embarcadero, you can shop, walk to Tidelands Park and play
on the pirate ship, or simply sit and watch as the boats make their way
to sea. Peruse MorroBay.com and learn more about the treasures of Estero
