Morro Rock is the core of an ancient volcano; one of the "seven sisters". There are great ocean views, and a party atmosphere with people enjoy the views and views of nesting falcons on the rock.

Morro Bay made me feel like I had come home! my daughter and granddaughter and myself had a road trip of a life time and stopping and spending the night at Morro Bay was one of the best day and evening of our trip! I hope to someday be able to be there again!

Morro Rock is a staple to Morro bay, did you know that the rock was born up to create the bay? Imagine how much larger it used to be...

The rock is pretty cool. The beach is a little rocky but can be family friendly in the summer. You can drive almost all the way around the rock and is worth a look. Good place for photos if you are a photographer.

This lump of rock is much more imposing than photographs suggest. My visit was interesting and enjoyable but the rock itself is out-of-bounds due to conservation concerns.

Great weekend for mother-daughter getaway. Even though it rained we still enjoyed our selves immensely. Our hotel gave us umbrellas to walk the pier with. Fabulous and friendly place to visit.

We made a stop just to see the bay and rock. Very glad we did. The rock is very distinct sticking out on the bay and the light fog low on the horizon gives the breaktaking paranormic view of the bay and Morro rock a mystical feel on a nice sunny day in the mild winter season. Great stop on... More

A great place to stop and take a ride or walk around. Make sure you look up the history of this Rock and why it is there... It's amazing.
