About Morro Bay

Morro Bay consists of three unique California Central Coast communities: Morro Bay, Cayucos, and 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 Bay!

Visit Cayucos

Cayucos is located at the Northern end of Estero Bay. Cayucos is a small beachfront community that contains the largest pier in the bay. Cayucos’ beach is what visitors expect in a California beach - sunny, sandy, and surfable. Take a walk or fish on the pier. Watch the otters and seals at play. Play in the surf or search for shells. But overall, be prepared to relax.
