Tips from locals

Morro Rock Natural Preserve - giant massive rock. Access the parking area at the north end of the Embarcadero. Walk along the beach, picnic, play frisbee.

Morro Bay is a great hot spot, Morro Rock is not something to have to go directly to enjoy it. Visit Morro Bay and you are close to Morro Rock. The harbor walk has so many shops and restaurants to enjoy. This is also good for the kiddos.

Walk on the board walk while snacking on some local salt water taffy or stop and eat some local seafood. Enjoy a view of the iconic Morro rock and watch sea otters within close proximity.
