Explore

Morro Rock is the bay's most striking feature. Standing 581-feet high, this surreal volcanic plug stands at the entrance to the harbor inviting tourists to come and explore its base. Climbing is prohibited without special permit because Morro Rock is a resting ground for otters and a peregrine falcon reserve. Members of the Chumash and Salinan tribes are permitted to climb Morro Rock and conduct annual ceremonies that have been performed for thousands of years at this sacred site.

Morro Bay State Park, encompasses the Morro Bay Lagoon, where saltwater marshes support a variety of bird populations and interesting strains of fish and crustaceans. Two of the Nine Sisters coastal chain of volcanic peaks are also on-site. You can hike the Black Hill Trail, sail, fish, and watch for unique birds, and the park's Morro Bay State Park Museum of Natural History has exhibitions about Morro Bay's geology, oceanography, ancient native Chumash Indian life, and their cultural history. The park also has a public golf course and a marina.

Beachcomber's Paradise fit the bill to a tee! We spent many a morning drinking coffee staring at the ocean or taking a walk on the beach in front of the house and many an evening enjoying an adult beverage in front of the fire pit. The house is well appointed and we were never lacking for anything. We loved all the beach 'kitsch' that decorated the house and gave it that fun, vacation feel. The owners left us great instructions on the place and area insights that we took advantage of (Hearst Castle, Taco Temple, downtown restaurants, etc). Thanks Fred and Candi for your hospitality!

It was clean, quiet, and comfortable. Nice touches include windshield washer fluid, squeegee, and towels to clean up the car windows upon arrival. Both the frontyard and backyard are well-kept and comfortable. The flat screen is probably newer and larger than yours at home. Barron was very responsive to questions as we prepared for our stay. And don't forget...blocks from the beach.
