You can drive over to the Rock and walk the trail. There are great picture ops. Also there are a couple beaches so bring your chairs & coolers if you want to hang out on the Beach. It is a bit of a walk from the car so if you have a disabled person in your party another Beach may... More

This is one humongous rock!! While eating at the Great American Fish Company, you have a wonderful view of this great wonder. You can drive out to see it as well. Morro Bay is just stunning!!

This is a great spot to view the sea otters - don't miss it! There's lots of parking around the rock. You will also see seals.

In the Bay. Did I mention its a rock that is big? You can frame an interesting picture with the power plant smoke stacks in the back ground.

Watch the sea otters, walk the wild beach and watch the surf, feed the seagulls. Great view of the harbor and sights of Morro Bay.

Honestly not superb superb impressive. Will not recommend if deliberately coming to see the rock. But a good stop if you are driving up along the west coast. The weather today is amazing, clear water and nice breeze. The crazy waves on the right side of the rock makes the day shine. Comfortable in the wind. Good little walk out... More

Take the ride around to The Rock -- there's great surfing, nesting peregrine falcons -- a sight to behold even in the fog which settled in during our brief visit.

for over 50 years and keep coming back, watching the otters is the best. I try to come in the off season when it's quieter and less tourists

The Morro Rock is spectacular easily accessible by car or a bicycle. The beach on either side is clean and relaxing. Bring a fishing rod, the locals say the fishing off the jetty is great

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.
