“A pristine California beach!”
Reviewed February 2, 2012

We live only a block from this beach and have used it for many years. It is a wide beach with sand dunes and runs from Morro Bay to Cayucos, a wonderful long walk of over four miles. Mostly locals use it during the week when it is sparsely occupied. You can fish from the shore and actually catch something!

“MORRO BAY IS A LITTLE BIT OF PARADISE”
Reviewed January 26, 2012

We absolutely love Morro Bay. The beaches during the week are wonderful - not too many people. The beaches are clean. You can walk for miles and simply enjoy the ocean. Or stroll along the boardwalk near the Rock. It's a very peaceful relaxing area.

“Great beach and big waves”
Reviewed January 24, 2012

Great place to visit if you like surfing - the waves were too big for our Body boards though and as a beginner I decided to watch the pro's instead.. well worth a visit!!

This could be the best beach in the world if the water was just a little warmer...great views, surfing, fishing, just wear the wetsuit.
