This is just one of those relaxing places to go and spend the day. Morro Rock is huge and the signs all over it say to stay off; I am not sure why, as you would have to be a very good rock climber to even start to climb it. There is a beach on the west side that is... More

We went on a beautiful sunny day. The rock is very big with nice family beaches. You can drive out there on a causeway. There were a lot of squirrels running around the car park which was fun as we do not have squirrels in Australia.

We drove around to the far side of the rock because we'd been told at the Natural History Museum that two pairs of peregrine falcons were nesting on the south face. With a little patience and some good binoculars we located one of the nests and were excited to see the male flying in and out with food for the... More

We came to see the rock a few years ago and decided to come back this year. Great to see up close in person and from the boardwalk where you can shop.

We drove all the way to Morro Rock and looked out each side. One side is the shoreline for people who want to go in the water and the other side is for staying in your car or sitting in chairs and just watching boats go by. There are many playful sea otters to watch, bring binoculars! We sat and... More

Had such a great time! Can go for a walk(or drive) around the rock on the bay side and hang out on a little beach that once you climb down the rocks, is perfect for children. No big waves. Then you can head over to the other side with a gorgeous beach. Lots of sand dollars and tide pools toward... More
