Morro Bay

On your way to Morro Bay, you can’t miss Morro Rock, one of the most iconic landmarks in The Land of SLO CAL. It’s a welcome sight for seafarers and tourists alike. They know beyond this rugged exterior lies sun, sand and a seaside harbor overflowing with marine animals. Chances are good you’ll encounter dolphins, seals and otters, swimming and lounging in the bay. Hit the dockside to find the bustling Embarcadero filled with unique shops, art galleries and family-friendly activities galore. 

Every day here offers up a new catch. Fisherman haul in their bounty daily, supplying fresh seafood and oysters to oceanfront restaurants and seaside markets. While Morro Bay is a true working fishing town, there’s always plenty of time for play. Get out on the water with excursions, like whale-watching tours, sunset dinner cruises and fishing charters. Try your hand at activities like kayaking, sailing, kite-flying, biking, stand-up paddleboarding and world-class surfing. All this fun-seeking is bound to work up a thirst. Luckily, the town’s famous barrel-aged sour beer is just the thing to quench it. The next time you’re sailing down Highway 1, be sure to drop your anchor in Morro Bay.
