lol. It is very majestic when taken in as a part of the whole skyline or coastline. Its origin is really cool, but it's the town around it that is fascinating to me.

The nine sisters are extinct volcano peaks which run in an approximately straight line for twelve miles, stretching from Morro Bay to San Luis Obispo. Impressive!

A local told us to go here to find sand dollar shells. They were tons of sand dollars and it is a beautiful beach. Lots of surfers to watch and plenty of rocks or benches to sit down. They do have bathroom facilities here as well. Watch out for the tame ground squirrels ...they will come right up to you... More

There is just something about going to Morro Bay. I love the smells, the sights, the people, the nature, you name it I love it. This rock is just so amazing and even though I have seen it probably almost 100 times in my life I am still in awe of it when I come to visit. I get excited... More

As an integral part of Morro Bay, Morro Rock holds all kinds of good memories. The beaches by it are great and it is a perfect destination for an early morning dog walk.

It was nice to see the rock up close. The ocean is on the other side. Nice beach area and there were people surfing too. Worth the ride if you're in the area.

We went to Morro Bay at the beginning of our drive on Pacific coast highway 1. Great place for nature lovers, birdwatchers, adventure seekers and for anyone else really! we went kayaking, saw seals in the water. The rock formations were fascinating! It was lovely to walk around the pretty village with cute shops. Good places to eat at as... More

This was fun to see, but at the end of the day, it's just a rock on a beach. There wasn't anything fun or interactive to do there, just walk around the bottom for a bit. I preferred seeing it from a distance as part of the broader landscape.
