Easy to get to the water or just watch! You can park and watch and also has places for trash and you can play in the water!

The long sandy beach is several miles long. The soft sand and dunes behind are stunning. Set to one side with the imppressive Morro Rock. Great for surfing and a paddle it was a bit cold in May to swim.

You can start at the Rock and beachcomb all the way to the neat little town of Cayucos. Explore the tide pools, look for sea glass, great photo opportunities.

Morro Strand is a hidden diamond. This area of the beach is not very crowded. You can walk for hours and hardly see anyone else. The sound of the waves is very relaxing. While walking on the beach you can admire the many homes there and wish you had a view like they do.

Was a beautiful day with a blue sky... Leading to clouds and wind. The beach was relatively clean and unpopulated.

I love staying here because it is easy to park my little trailer and look at the ocean. The sound of the waves are very comforting. Once the bathrooms are updated with showers, I'll give this place a 5 star review.

We were in the area for Valentine's Day/Presidents Holiday weekend and stopped by Morro Strand State Beach. The sunset in particular was very nice this time.
