Montana de Oro, or Mountain of Gold, is home to many scenic views and beaches. Sandspit Beach is one of the gems of the park, located just inside the park. Drive out Pecho Valley Road and turn right into the Sandspit day-use area and park at the end of the road. Walking along the beach from the access point is the only way to get to the Morro Bay Sandspit, where a variety of birds flock in the waves. Morro Rock is also visible in the distance while walking along the shore.
